What kind of Praprika was used ? Smoked or Hoy

Absolutely delicious and SUPER easy. I also added some small florets of cauliflower when I added the beans, just to boost the veg content and sprinkled mine with chilli flakes at the end. Will make again and again.

Was surprisingly easy and really tasty.

Thank you Bill, lovely soup. I don't see how you can substitute the thyme with chilli as the thyme is one of the layers of flavour. There are a lot of really substandard chorizo around though, and that will impact on the chilli/paprika layer of flavour to a significant level.
To be honest, if the chorizo isn't excellent then don't bother to make this recipe. I'm lucky enough to be able to access amazing chorizo in Dulwich Hill Sydney - I don't know if I can name the business thet makes them here, but their fresh sausages, ham and smoked meats are so good that people I know in Canberra travel to Sydney for them.
I use a tin of chopped tomatoes and cook the soup longer as it can be difficult to get good ripe fresh tomatoes and our family love a full flavoured soup.
It freezes well.

I am sad to anounce that the Eumundie Smokehouse has moved to Qld, and this family is not happy about it I can tell you. Have tried the Portuguese butchers etc with no luck - more like devon, little texture. None have the depth of flavour, not to mention the remarkable lack of fat that does not compromise flavour. We have not found another Chorizo to match it. Rang Eumundie Smokehouse in Qld, locating them was fun, and was given a retailer in Paddington. Chorizo was vacumn sealed and not as beautifully aged as from their shop. Yes, I suppose that this obsession is a little sad, but what can I say?

Sorry Bill. After seeing the Lifestyle add re your soup I decided to check the recipe and give it a whirl. As usual I started all gung ho without checking the pantry. Whilst frying my chorizo I sliced my onions and as I had no celery I used fennel stalks. What I thought was white beans was actually 5 bean mix (and only one 400gm tin) so when I tossed in the tomatoes I threw in some greens beans as well. Other than that I followed the recipe to the letter and it tasted great. Yum!

My Great Grandmother's recipe could even date back further, but instead of Chorizo we always used Spec (smokey bacon) cubed.
Served with crusty bread its always been a winner. Thanks for sharing your version.

Delicious soup. I'd add chilli if I were cooking it just for adults, but left it out as I was serving it to children. Everyone loved it :)
