There are hundreds of versions of this classic recipe. It's a favorite in Spain, Portugal and some of the Azorean Islands (off the lower coast of Portugal). It's quite easy to prepare, and it's delicious and features a full, robust flavor palate. In Spain, it would be prepared with Spanish Chorizo, and in Portugal and the Azores it would be prepared with linguica. The addition of the tomatoes (a popular ingredient in Spanish and Azorean cuisines, in particular) makes this version a little different from other Spanish/Portuguese Kale Soup recipes that you'll find on most sites.
