  • 3/4 cup chopped onion
  • 9 oz Mexican chorizo
  • 3 cups diced potato (any kind is fine)
  • 28 oz low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1-2 cups chopped, massaged kale (optional)
  • 1 cup cojita cheese (optional)


  1. Heat a large dutch oven or stock pot to a medium-high heat. Add chorizo and onion. Cook until chorizo is browned and cooked through, about 10 minutes. Add potatoes, toss with a wooden spoon and cook until slightly softened, about 3-4 minutes. 

  2. Add chicken stock and salt. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer. Simmer until potatoes are cooked through, about 10-12 minutes. (If using kale, add after the soup has simmered for 8 minutes.)  Add corn, simmer another minute. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with chopped parsley and cojita cheese.
