White Bean Soup with Chorizo and Kale

White Bean Soup with Chorizo and Kale
The weather has been cold and rainy lately so I decided to warm us up with a pot of soup. I found this recipe in my Cooking Light – Novemberissue and I was excited to make it. My husband loves chorizo so I knew he would be very happy to come home from work to a big bowl of this spicy soup. It was quick and simple to make and had very little clean up – my favorite kind of recipe. My husband loved it and so did I. It was a bit too spicy for my kids so my husband happily had the rest for lunch the next day.
