This chorizo, white bean, and potato soup is delicious and comforting. Garlic, onions, Swiss chard, and cream make this soup extra flavorful.
This is one of those soups that tastes even better the next day. More of the starch is released from the potatoes, and the flavors meld together, creating a richer soup.
This soup is quite similar to a certain Olive Garden copycat recipe, so if you like that one, you're in luck. I mean, what's not to like about this soup? It's a big bowl of comfort.
The chorizo adds a bit of zip to this soup, which is great on a cold winter day. You really can't go wrong with chorizo.
The Swiss chard adds some vitamins and a nice texture to the soup. Beans add some protein. This is a very hearty soup, and one bowl makes a great dinner!
