Slow Cooker Recipe For Split Pea Soup With Chorizo

Sunday Slow Cooker: Split Pea Soup With Chorizo

My absolute favorite slow cooker recipe is actually a soup. A rich, full-bodied split pea soup. Although pea soup can also be made meatless, it's classically prepared with diced ham or a ham hock. Tonight, I can't wait to experiment with a contemporary take on split pea, which uses a different pig product, chorizo. Since the recipe calls for a dice, buy Spanish chorizo.

It's cured and smoked, making it easier to slice, as opposed to the often-uncooked Mexican version. Try something new when you read more.
