Really different, nice smooth flavor
I was iffy about this tasting like all the other tomato-based soups I make -- which end up tasting like a variation of minestrone. This was different and really, really good. I used the soft Mexican style sausage they warned against -- in fact, I used chicken chorizo from the Whole Foods counter. I just used one link for the whole soup and that was all it needed. I didn't want it to be super greasy from the sausage. Also, I used canned tomato sauce, not crushed tomatoes. That worked very well. Highly recommend the recipe!
Pros: Comfort food, smooth textury, not too thin and brothy, but not thick or creamy either
