Chorizo, Beans and Tomato Soup
I love the flavour of Chorizo, add it to any dish it will instantly change it from boring to exciting, it makes any dish taste like a Spanish dish, I call this the bacon of the Iberian Peninsula. Chorizo is a very flexible ingredient, it can be used in pasta, stews, pizza, rice even in soups like our post today.
Chorizo, Beans and Tomato Soup our chosen recipe today is a soup dish of mixed beans and tomatoes flavoured with chorizos and paprika, its tastes partly Mexican, a bit of Spanish and it’s totally comforting. A really easy dish to prepare and usually made with common pantry items.
