potato and chorizo soup

I was reading the description of a cookbook today by a food blogger I had never read before.  I was following links as I was archiving data.  A very exciting day.  But the description had a potato soup that sounded interesting.  Chorizo.  White Onion.  Potato.  If I ever read the cookbook, I may find that there is much more to the soup in the original context but this is a lovely tasty soup.  Especially if you have everything in the freezer and refrigerator and a bag of chips to go with it.

potato and chorizo soup

2 tablespoons olive oil

4 ounces chorizo

4 ounces bacon, diced

1 white onion, peeled and chopped fairly fine

1 to 2 pounds red potatoes, cut into bite size chunks

4 garlic cloves, cleaned and minced

1 teaspoon alder smoked salt

1 teaspoon ground black pepper

water to cover

In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat.  Add the onion and brown slowly.  When the onion starts to get golden, add the bacon and chorizo.  Let get brown and then add the garlic.  Let the garlic brown and add the potatoes.  Cover with water.  Stir in the salt and pepper.  Bring to a boil.  Turn down to a simmer and cook until the potatoes are soft to a fork.

Serve with chips.
