Spicy Sausage and Spinach Soup

Spicy chorizo and jalapeno give this great soup plenty of flavor. The rice adds a great heartiness and mellows the heat a bit. Serve this with sour cream.

  • 1 tbsp vegetable oil
  • 4 oz chorizo sausage, diced
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1 jalapeno, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp crushed red pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1/2 cup long grain brown rice
  • 2 cups baby spinach
Heat oil in large sauce pan or stock pot over medium heat. Add sausage, onion, celery, and jalapeno and saute for 2 minutes. Add garlic, salt, red pepper, cumin, and chili powder and saute for 1 minute. Add tomatoes and broth and bring to a boil. Stir in rice. Cover and reduce heat to medium low and let cook for 40 minutes or until rice is tender. Place 1/2 cup of raw spinach in each serving bowl and ladle soup over spinach.

Number of Servings: 4
