I have sung the praises of the Everyday Paleo Family Cookbook before in my November Books post, and this recipe is adapted from her Tomato Soup With Chicken Recipe. I didn’t change much on it because it really didn’t need much. A little extra spices and switched chicken for Chorizo, since I already had chicken on the menu for the week, and this will make a nice lunch or dinner time meal.
Ingredients: 1 small yellow onion ~ 2 garlic gloves or 1 TSP minced garlic ~ 5 cups diced tomatoes (approx. 7-8 tomatoes) ~ 1 (13.5) oz can of coconut milk ~ 1 TSP sea salt ~ 1/2 TSP Pepper ~ 1 TBSP Italian Seasoning ~ 2 TBSP coconut oil ~ 1 package of Chorizo
Directions: In a large soup or stock pot on medium heat carmalize the onions in the coconut oil. Add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes.
If you are vegetatrian, swap the Chorizo for some kidney beans or white beans. Not a fan of Chorizo, try Chicken, Ham, or ground turkey.
- 1 small yellow onion ~ 2 garlic gloves or 1 TSP minced garlic ~ 5 cups diced tomatoes (approx. 7-8 tomatoes) ~ 1 (13.5) oz can of coconut milk ~ 1 TSP sea salt ~ 1 TSP Pepper ~ 1 TBSP Italian Seasoning ~ 2 TBSP coconut oil ~ 1 package of Chorizo
- In a large soup or stock pot on medium heat carmalized the onions in the coconut oil. Add the garlic and cook for another 1-2 minutes. Stir in the diced tomatoes, stirring often for approximately 7-10 minutes. Season with the salt and pepper, then add the coconut milk.
- Do not use the coconut milk in the freezer section, use the can milk, it is slightly thicker.
- Carefully pour into a blender and puree. Be sure and cover the top with an oven mitt in case any should spill out. Not that this happened to me (okay yes, it did).
- Return to the pan and simmer. In a separate pan cook up your Chorizo. You can remove the casing and use just the ground Chorizo or slices, halved. Add the Chorizo to the pan with the soup and serve.
Um…yum! Pinning this one, for sure. Nice job on the photos!
Thank you. Hope you give it a try!
I do love a good soup! This sounds so yummy and different!!
It was different that other tomato soups I’ve tried and the coconut milk make it a little lighter.
Oh this looks delicious!!! I don’t think I’ve ever cooked chorizo on my own, but I love it!! xo, Biana
Oh you should. I swear i have it at least once a week! Ha!
it looks very hearty, esp this time of year!!
It was filling and nice to help warm me up.
Oh my gosh this looks so so good!
Thank you so much! I had leftovers too which was a bonus!

I think soup recipes have been my favorite the past couple of months. I don’t think I’ve ever had chorizo, but this definitely looks good!
It has been so cold it is nice to warm up with some soup! Say what?! I am obsessed with Chorizo! It really is just like a spicier Sausage though I get the mild version.

Love a good soup, and this looks DELISH 😀
It is delicious but healthy too. Win-win!
Emily @ Martinis & Bikinis says
yay you shared the recipe!! I see the secret ingredient is coconut milk giving it that color. This recipe looks amazing!
Of course! Couldn’t leave you hanging. Yes, I love that the coconut milk helped cut out the dairy and it doesn’t have a coconut taste just really helps blend it all together.

I am so making this this week!I have been looking for a good hearty Whole30 friendly soup. Perfect Thank you!
Thank you. Seriously checkout her book then. i got it from the library but then bought it because there was so many good recipes I tried from it.
pinned and printed. don’t judge me but the soup actually looks amazing on it’s own – i wonder if i could use soy chorizo (but it’s all crumbly) for my husband (i’m not a fan) or you did say it was originally chicken, maybe i could chuck some chicken in there for him.
I promise not to judge you. The original was with chicken so that is possible to add on top. It is good on it’s own the meat just makes it a little more filling, but totally okay without it too.
A Paleo dish!! I’ve been wanting to try out some Paleo stuff. I’ll put this on my list of things!
I really like going Paleo it really is so much less processed foods.
This looks and sounds wonderful! I will definitely have to try!
I hope you do. Very filling and healthy.
This sounds so good…soup is always a win for me, and I love chorizo!
Soup is perfect right now in this weather. Don’t you just love it?
That soup looks so good. Too bad I refuse to eat soup. True story, whenever I wasn’t feeling well, my mom would give me soup and then i would get really sick. Twice I ended up in the ER and I blame it on the soup. And it was never food poisoning, it was always something with my lungs.
Oh no! Bad experience can really ruin a food, trust me I know how that goes all too well.

I genuinely want to jump through the screen for this soup. Pinning immediately and trying soon!
Thanks!! Hope you like it. Gotta love all natural ingredients, and Chorizo! 😉
Obviously I’m not into the meat thang but this looks like some seriously delicious comfort food!
You could totally switch the Chorizo for some beans girl!
