Hi Velva, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I like this bowl of comfort food and the shrimp just makes it that much better. Have a nice weekend:-)

Look at that rich broth! I've got to get some Spanish chorizo for this. You can find the Mexican variety anywhere, but for Spanish I have to make a special trip.

Bo said...

This has so much flavor...I can taste it from here...perfect weather for a spicy stew too.

Hmmmm, that looks good. Chorizo is spicy and always good in a soup or stew. I'm a big fan of kale. Love the health benefits of my greens.

You wouldn't believe the number of times I cook chorizo with prawns (heaps!), but I've never made it as a stew. What a brilliant idea, bookmarking this asap :)

I love pairing chorizo with shrimp or chicken. All these tomatoes and spices just warms my wintry soul.

A Canadian Foodie said...

Oh - convince me!!! Shrimp? Chorizo? Can't be good.... hahaha - what a great idea for a quick winter night during the holiday season!
I have both in the house, and think it just might hit the table tonight. I prefer the sweet Spanish paprika - love it, actually, and might just switch this up a bit by leaving out the potatoes and serving it over rice.
Thanks, Velva!
