  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 chorizo or andouille sausage links casing removed
  • 3/4 cup yellow onion diced
  • 1/2 cup carrot sliced
  • 1/4 cup celery sliced
  • 2 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 2 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 lb. yukon gold or red potatoes diced
  • 2 cups kale stems removed
  • 32 oz. chicken broth
  • 1 cup water
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Fresh parsley for garnish


  • Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat; add sausage and cook until browned, about 5 minutes; Use a slotted spoon to remove sausage and set aside, keeping the oil and sausage grease in the skillet.
  • In that same skillet, add the onion, carrots, celery, garlic, and paprika, stirring occasionally for 2-3 minutes. If onion starts browning too quickly, add 1 additional tablespoon of oil.
  • Next, add the potatoes and kale, stirring to combine, and then pour chicken broth and water into the skillet.
  • Bring soup to a boil, then reduce heat to a simmer and place a lid on top. Simmer soup until potatoes are cooked, approximately 15 minutes, and then add the cooked sausage back into the skillet; stir to combine.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste, and top soup with fresh parsley.
