A great and flavoursome soup, made with a few basic ingredients and the warming flavours of the chorizo and chilli.

It can be left chunky or blitzed into a puree, perfect for cold winter days.

  • 1 400g tin of chopped tomatoes
  • 2 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium carrot, peeled and diced
  • 1 medium potato, peeled and diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1 or 2 uncooked chorizo sausages (200g)
  • 1 chicken stock cube
  • 2 teaspoons vegetable (rapeseed oil)
  • 1 small, mild green chilli chopped or 1/2 teaspoon dried chilli flakes


  • Chopping board
  • Kitchen scales
  • Knife
  • Large saucepan
  • Measuring jug

Step 1
