  • Summary

    Emeril calls this version "new-style" because the kale is cut into thin strips and is cooked only until crisp-tender, which differs from the traditional version. Serve with crusty bread alongside.

    Ingredients

    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped yellow onions
    • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
    • 2 pounds Idaho potatoes, peeled and cut into 1/2-inch cubes
    • 7 cups chicken stock or canned, low-sodium chicken broth
    • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
    • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
    • 8 ounces kale, large stems and ribs removed
    • 8 ounces firm (smoked) chorizo or other hot smoked sausage, diced or crumbled
    • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
    • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint
