Sopa Caldosa

Photo: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Fonda Shaia

This popular soup from the Oaxaca region of Mexico features chorizo (pronounced chor-EE-zoh), a coarsely ground pork sausage flavored with chili powder, garlic, and other seasonings. We use a simple, homemade Mexican Chorizo that's easy to put together (better yet, it can be prepared the day before). You can substitute a soft commercial chorizo that is found in most supermarkets, but it will be higher in fat.

Yield: 6 servings (serving size: 1 1/3 cups soup, 1 1/2 teaspoons parsley, and 1/4 cup mexican chorizo)
