A hearty and warming chicken chorizo white bean soup.  This recipe starts with celery, carrots, onions, with chicken chorizo sausage, white beans, and spinach, all in a savory chicken bone broth.


  • 1-3 Tbsp avocado or olive oil
  • 1 lb FRESH chicken or regular chorizo sausages, casing removed
  • 2 cups finely chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped fresh celery
  • 1 cup chopped fresh carrot
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 4 cups of chicken bone broth, or chicken stock
  • 2 15oz cans Great Northern White Beans, drained and rinsed
  • 5 large handfuls of spinach
  • ¼ cup chopped fresh flat-leaf parsley
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. In a large, heavy saucepan or Dutch oven, heat 1-2 Tbsp avocado oil over medium-high heat.  Add the chorizo, and break it up with your spatula or spoon, so it crumbles and cooks through.  About 5-8 minutes.  Remove from pan, and set aside.  Do not wipe out the pan.
  2. Add a little bit more oil (if needed), and then add the chopped onion, celery, and carrot.  Cook until the onions are tender and translucent, about 5-10 minutes.  Add the chopped garlic, and stir.
  3. Add the chorizo back into the pot.  Stir in the paprika, some salt and pepper, and finally the chicken stock.  Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and cover.  Simmer for 30 minutes.  Add the beans, and continue to simmer for an additional 20-25 minutes.
  4. Add one cup (handful) of spinach at a time, and allow it to wilt before adding another.  Taste it, and season with additional salt and pepper before serving, if needed.
