Quick & Easy Potato, Sweet Potato & Chorizo Soup



Quick & Easy Potato, Sweet Potato & Chorizo Soup

Prep time: 10 minutes
Cooking time: 30 minutes

Serves 6-8

Ingredients:
1 tbsp olive oil
1-2 links smoked chorizo sausage, thinly sliced
2 large sweet potatoes, peeled and diced small
2 large potatoes, (I like Yukon Gold), peeled and diced small
8 cups chicken broth
Salt & pepper to taste
2 sprigs fresh thyme (rosemary would be good here too)

Directions:
1. Sauté the chorizo in olive oil in a large Dutch oven until they start to crisp around the edges about 3 minutes. Add the potatoes and sweet potatoes and sauté for another 3-4 minutes. Add thyme and chicken broth.

2. Stir in any bits stuck to the bottom of the pot and bring it to a boil. Lower the heat to simmer and cook uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally. The soup is ready when the potatoes are soft. I mashed them a bit in the pot so that the soup thickened but there were still chunks of vegetables.
