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!

  1. 5 stars
    Really yummy! I substituted spinach for the chard. I also used 3tbs of butter and 2 cups of cashew milk instead of the half and half. At the end I added extra garlic powder and sumac for a pop of color and added zing. Thanks!

  2. This soup looks aaaamazing, and perfect for winter! I love really hearty soups with lots of stuff in them. And the fact that it has chorizo and potatoes would probably even satisfy my fiance, who for some strange reason thinks soups are not filling.

  3. I can’t take my eyes from this soup, you present it so beautifully – just like everything you cook ā¤ It looks delicious and it seems easy yo make, I put it on my list of ‘absolute-must-do’ recipes šŸ™‚ ā¤

  4. This looks like the perfect comfort food! I love anything with chorizo, there’s so much flavour in there!
