Soups

Creamy Chorizo and Brussels Sprouts Soup

4

I have a cold. Yes, last week after having a sick kiddo for half the week it seems I have acquired some of the nastiness. Kids are funny about giving; they won't share their toys but they will share their germs. With that said, Tuesday evening I did NOT feel like cooking. In fact, as I stood prepping two pounds of brussels sprouts for this soup I was feeling rather resentful. Why couldn't my six year-old who passed this cold on to me get his butt in the kitchen and fix his mom some soup

8
1 lb. chorizo sausage, finely diced (if you can find ground, even better!)
1 large yellow onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 lb. brussels sprouts, ends trimmed and finely chopped
8 c. chicken broth
1 lb. yukon gold potatoes, diced
2 t. paprika
2 t. salt
1/2 t. pepper
1 (12 oz.) can evaporated milk
In a large soup pot brown the chorizo sausage then add the onion and cook for 5 minutes, or until the onion starts to soften and turns translucent. Add the garlic and brussels sprouts and cook for 3 minutes...
