This sounds really good. Have you tried it? Did you use a hard chorizo sausage, or soft chorizo?

i actually used hot italian sausages, since that was what i had in my fridge. you could use chorizo - i assume when you say "soft kind" you meant raw, and not smoked? i like the raw kind, i dont particularly like the smoked flavor and i think that the raw kind has more natural flavors to add to the soup. but you could use either one, depending on your taste and preference.
