I love this dish and go out of my way to get kale so I can make it, though I suppose you can use collards instead. I have served it to guests as a simple weeknight dinner and it has been well received. A simple salad and bread will round out the meal. I think I used more beans and less chorizo, only becuase that was how those ingredients were packaged. I did use homemade chicken or turkey stock, and that added fabulous flavor.
Spanish Kale-and-White Bean Soup
This hearty soup makes a great meal by itself, or serve it with crusty bread and cheese (we like Manchego).
