Sopa De Garbanzos (Chickpea Soup)

Sopa De Garbanzos

I love a good hearty soup. Throw everything in one pot and let it go. Sopa de Garbanzo was a favorite in my house growing up. The Chorizo (Spanish style sausage) really makes this soup, and a little Canadian bacon takes it over the edge.

  • 1 onion, diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded, diced
  • 2 chorizos (Spanish-style sausage) cut into 1″ pieces
  • 4 ounces Canadian bacon, diced
  • 2 cans garbanzo beans (chickpeas)
  • 1-15 ounce can tomato sauce
  • 1 cup vino seco (dry white wine)
  • 1 large baking potato, peeled, cut into small cubes
  • salt to taste
  • olive oil

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and green bell pepper, cook until onions are translucent. Add chorizo and Canadian bacon, cook additional 3 minutes. Add the 2-cans of garbanzo beans with their liquid. Add tomato sauce, white wine and potato. Reduce the heat and simmer for 45 minutes.

Serve with warm garlic bread.

Makes 4-6 servings.
