I am not a big fan of kale, but this soup was delicious.

Heat small non-stick skillet over medium heat. Add chorizo and cook, stirring until browned, about 3 minutes. Drain and set aside.

In heavy stockpot, heat oil over med heat. Add onions and saute until softened, about 5 minutes. Add chicken stock, potatoes & garlic and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until the potatoes are tender, 10 - 15 minutes.

With a slotted spoon, transfer the potatoes to a bowl; lightly mash with a fork and return to the soup. Bring to a simmer and add kale, a handful at a time. Simmer until kale is tender, about 5 minutes. Stir in reserved sausage and season with salt & pepper to taste.

NB: I used about 8 oz of a low-fat fully cooked sausage. I did not brown it as the more you cook this kind of sausage, the less flavor it has. I added it to the soup after the kale was cooked and allowed it to heat through.
