Sopa de Lentejas con Chorizo


Today is a soup kind of day, it is quite windy in London and a bit chilly, so I fancied something cosy and warm, also I have the hubby working from home, so I decided to make this amazing soup which is ready in no time.

It is a lentil soup with chorizo, very popular in Mexico, I have the vegetarian version on the blog, so if you prefer to cook that just click on this link “sopa de lentejas”  but for now here is the recipe for my sopa de lentejas con chorizo.
