  • Summary

    Richly spiced with chili peppers and smoked paprika, caldo verde is deeply flavored and brimming with nutrient-dense additions such as manganese-rich kale, potatoes and pasture-raised lard and chorizo. For both ease of preparation and for a lovely presentation, I recommend serving the potatoes whole.

    Ingredients

    • 1½ lbs fingerling potatoes, (preferably no longer than two inches)
    • 1 tbsp bacon fat or lard
    • 1 lb chorizo
    • 2 to 3 dried chili peppers
    • 2 shallots, (thinly sliced)
    • 3 to 4 cloves garlic, (minced)
    • 3 medium carrots,, (chopped)
    • 2 quarts roast chicken stock, (preferably homemade)
    • 2 bunches kale, (stems removed and chopped coarsely)
    • 1 to 2 tsp smoked Spanish paprika
    • unrefined sea salt, (to taste)
    • unrefined extra virgin olive oil , (to serve)
