Spicy Chorizo Soup

I made this soup while staying at my cousin's house last month (Family Affair, Part 2)...but that was my second go at it!

The first time I made this soup I used black and garbanzo beans, seaweed and buttermilk.

1 medium onion
1 can black beans
1 can garbanzo beans
1 small can diced tomatoes
1 carton organic tomato soup
1 carton chicken stock
1 package chorizo sausage
Organic kelp sheets
Chili powder
Garlic powder

I pretty much made it up as I went along...and started by cutting up the sausage and cooking it in a large pot with the onion (chopped)...then adding the beans and spices (dashes of each). Next I put the cartons of tomato soup and chicken stock in and let it simmer for about 15-20 minutes. Then I added strips of kelp until I was happy and adjusted the spices to taste (I made it on the spicy side). Then I just let it simmer away on low until I felt it was ready :) Maybe another 15-20 minutes.

After I dished some out, I added a dollop of buttermilk to the bowl.


*Adding corn might be nice!*

This is another one of my non-recipes...but as you can see, it's really easy and you can switch it up every time!  These types of soups are great "clean out the pantry" types of meals.
