  • 1 tablespoon Filippo Berio Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 (14 ounce) package spicy chorizo sausage, casings removed
  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 5 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 carrots, finely chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, finely chopped
  • 3/ 4 cup mushrooms, finely chopped
  • Kosher salt, to taste
  • Black peppercorns, freshly ground, to taste
  • 1/ 2 cup dry white wine
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 (15 ounce) cans white beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 bunch lacinato kale, stems discarded and leaves torn
  • Parmesan, for serving
  • Simply Organic Crushed Red Pepper Flakes, for serving


  • Step 1

    Heat oil over medium high in a large, heavy-bottomed pot. Add chorizo, using the back of a fork to break into small crumbles. Cook until chorizo is browned and crispy, about 8-10 minutes. Remove chorizo with a slotted spoon and set aside. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons oil.

  • Step 2

    Add onion and cook until soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add garlic, carrots, celery, and mushrooms and cook until veggies are soft and completely cooked down, another 3-4 minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  • Step 3

    Add wine, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Let wine reduce by half, about 2 minutes. Add chicken broth and beans and bring to a boil. Once boiling, reduce to a simmer, add cooked chorizo, and let simmer for 10 minutes. Season to taste.

  • Step 4

    Add torn kale leaves and let cook until slightly wilted, about 2 minutes. Serve in bowls with freshly grated Parmesan, red pepper flakes, and crusty bread (if desired).
