This soup is a Portuguese favourite, and a great use of kale. Enjoy it with a thick slice of your favourite bread!
Just a note of my slightly different order of things... I actually fry the chorizo/sausage and use some of that fat to then continue with the process, it adds lot more flavour and as someone mentioned I prefer to use chicken/vegetable broth! Also, I never blend the potatoes for this soup, rather mash them so I end up with some pieces rather than just a creamy soup base! I just love Caldo Verde, one of my all time favourites! - 25 Jul 2017

Very good, not quite like my mother in law's, but very good. I did switch the liguica for chorico and more than doubled the amount, but thats how I like it. - 12 Dec 2002 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
