Mexican Chorizo Chili Soup

With the playoff games on today, I thought a good hearty soup sounded great. After taking inventory of what we had available, I came up with a different style of chili soup, using chorizo in addition to ground beef.


1 lb ground beef
1 lb mild chorizo
1 jalapeno
2 cans Original rotel tomatos/green chiles
1 large can chicken broth
1 onion
1 small can of corn
2 cans white navy beans
4 or 5 cloves garlic

Brown chorizo, diced onion, and ground beef in skillet until cooked through. Strain grease from mixture and transfer to crock pot or soup pot. Add to this, corn, tomatoes, diced jalapeno, diced garlic, broth, and navy beans. Simmer in crock pot or soup pot for a few hours so all the flavors can come together. The chorizo flavors the soup and gives it a mexican taste and feel. Serve in large bowls with tortilla chips, cheese and avacado. We ate this for lunch and were amazed with how great it turned out. Give it a try and let me know if you liked it.

    By the strangest of coincidences, I had chili tonight after we drove home. Unfortunately, it was from a can.


    • hahah. You should have stayed an extra day. You would have really loved this soup. It really turned out way better than I expected. I will make it for you next time you come to town. I know Sarah wont mind!
