Marx Foods: Soyrizo Double Potato Soup
I'm fortunate enough to have been given many opportunities to fulfill my passion and create new recipes with the help of Marx Foods gourmet food products. This soup is by far a favorite and definitely a keeper, thanks Marx Foods!
Soyrizo Double Potato Soup
Marx Foods Dried Guajillo Peppers
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes
1 T. olive oil
12 oz. soyrizo
1 medium onion, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and sliced thin
6 c. chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Marx Foods dried guajillo pepper, reconstituted and minced
1 t. dried Mexican oregano
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 T. cilantro, minced, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
1/4 c. sour cream
1 avocado, pitted and diced or sliced
1 Clementine orange, cut in 1/4
Heat oil over medium high in a large sauce pot and add soyrizo. Cook until lightly browned about 8 to 10 minutes. Using a slotted spoon scoop soyrizo into a bowl and set aside.
To same pot add onion and cook 3 to 5 minutes stirring often. Add carrots and cook another 5 minutes. Deglaze pot with broth scraping bottom of pan clean. Stir in garlic, dried oregano, Marx Foods guajillo pepper, potatoes and tomatoes. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 to 25 minutes for potatoes to cook and flavors to meld.
Before serving stir in minced cilantro and browned soyrizo. Garnish each portion with 1 tablespoon of sour cream, 1/4 of an avocado, a squeeze of 1/4 of a Clementine across soup and top with a sprig of cilantro.
