How To Make Creamy Chorizo and Brussels Sprouts Soup

Brussels sprouts and chorizo take center stage in this recipe for Brussels sprouts soup. The broth is milk-based and flavored with various seasonings.

Preparation: 10 minutes
Cooking: 25 minutes
Total: 35 minutes



  • 8ozSpanish chorizo,finely diced
  • 1medium white onion,diced
  • 2cloves garlic,minced
  • 1lbbrussels sprouts,finely chopped
  • 4cupschicken broth
  • 2cupsYukon gold potatoes,about ½ lb, diced
  • 1tsppaprika
  • ½tspsea salt
  • ¼tspblack pepper
  • 6ozevaporated milk
  • shredded Manchego,or Parmesan cheese, chopped fresh parsley, reserved chorizo, optional toppings


  1. Saute chorizo in a large stockpot over medium-high heat for about 3 to 5 minutes or until cooked stirring occasionally. Remove chorizo with a slotted spoon. Reserve 2 tablespoons of grease in the stockpot, and discard the rest.

  2. Add onion to the stockpot, and saute in the chorizo grease for 5 minutes or until soft and translucent, stirring occasionally. Add garlic and brussels sprouts, and saute for an additional 3 minutes or until the brussels sprouts begin to brown, stirring occasionally.

  3. Add chicken broth, potatoes, paprika, salt and pepper, and stir to combine. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.

  4. If you would like a pureed soup, blend soup using an immersion blender or stand blender. If you would like a chunkier soup, leave it as is. Stir in evaporated milk and chorizo, reserving ¼ cup chorizo for toppings if desired.

  5. Season with additional salt and pepper if needed.

  6. Serve warm with toppings.
