Today I'm sharing with you an easy recipe for a very tasty bean soup on the crock pot that hits just the spot.
The richness of the beans with the spice of the chorizo makes it ideal for fall and winter! Even the color is inviting and "fall-like"
I'm using for this recipe the new chorizos by Johnsonville. They are less spicy than your traditional mexican chorizo, very affordable ( I got mine with a 2 for $5.00 deal) and since they are milder in flavor, the soup is also kid friendly.
This soup is good by itself, it has big chunks of chorizo and beans, very satisfying. Top it of with sour cream, some green onions and of course some crispy Bacon. Also,if you are like me, no soup is complete without it's side of white rice! I know, It's tradition in my country to have soup with rice, I guess it's like having hamburger with fries here in the US.
Thank you for visiting the blog today! Lately I've been letting the recipes do the talking. Simple but tasty homey foods require few words and big appetites! Once you are full, then we can talk, lol. Have a beautiful day and remember my friends, everything tastes better with a Pinch of Love!
