Creamy Chorizo Potato Soup is a rich, delicious and soul-satisfying meal on a cold winter night. Serve this with a side of crusty bread.
Winter is almost coming to an end, so is the soup season. We have to wait one long year for enjoying a bowl of cozy soup. So before it gets warmer, I am trying few more interesting soups. There are lots of potato soup out there. If you love thick creamy potato soup, then I am sure you are going to love this version as well. This smokey Chorizo potato soup I had prepared a few weeks back. It is so hearty and filling. Once the potato is cooked, it makes the soupyou don’t have to add gallons of cream to make it creamy.
This is for the first time I tried Chorizo. We really liked it because it is spicy and quite flavourful. If you have any interesting recipe with Chorizo, then would love to hear from you. I served some crusty sourdough bread on the side and it was a winning combo.
This soup is one pot and takes 30- 40 minutes to make. This soup can also be made in a slow cooker and Instant Pot, all you have to do is adjust the cooking time. If you are making in a slow cooker, brown the chorizo in a pan and then add all the ingredients to the slow cooker. At the end add milk and cook for another 30 minutes on low. Instant pot version would be even quicker than stove top. So it’s up to you which method you choose. This soup can easily be made in bulk and refrigerated up to 4 days. If it is very thick, then add warm stock to it while reheating and you are good to go.
