Love it…and yes, I've been looking for those easy one pot meals. So busy these days.

I just happen to have chorizo, shrimp and kale in my fridge. Who knew they would look this good together 🙂
One of my favorite food combos is shrimp and chorizo!!!!!! This recipe sounds BEYOND amazing!
Velva, don'tcha love when we get the chance to make warming comfort foods? I just made a lovely Moroccan influenced stew last night as well. I LOVE chorizo and seafood, try the chorizo with clams too! Divine, I could eat this right now! (and it's breakfast time!)

Hi Velva, thanks for visiting my blog and leaving a sweet comment. I like this bowl of comfort food and the shrimp just makes it that much better. Have a nice weekend:-)
Look at that rich broth! I've got to get some Spanish chorizo for this. You can find the Mexican variety anywhere, but for Spanish I have to make a special trip.
This has so much flavor…I can taste it from here…perfect weather for a spicy stew too.
Your stew looks so appetizing.Love the shrimp and chorizo combination. The broth makes it all that much more mouthwatering.
This sounds perfect for a rainy or snowy day!

Hmmmm, that looks good. Chorizo is spicy and always good in a soup or stew. I'm a big fan of kale. Love the health benefits of my greens.

Two of my favorite ingredients!
Looks so hearty and good, a bowl of comforting stew! Perfect for this cold season!
I really like the look of this stew. I am excited to try it!
You wouldn't believe the number of times I cook chorizo with prawns (heaps!), but I've never made it as a stew. What a brilliant idea, bookmarking this asap 🙂
Ah! This looks fabulous. Chorizo is the best.
this type of stew is perfect for the weather we're having right now–hot in temperature and spicy enough to warm you in another way! good stuff. 🙂
I love pairing chorizo with shrimp or chicken. All these tomatoes and spices just warms my wintry soul.

Oh – convince me!!! Shrimp? Chorizo? Can't be good…. hahaha – what a great idea for a quick winter night during the holiday season!I have both in the house, and think it just might hit the table tonight. I prefer the sweet Spanish paprika – love it, actually, and might just switch this up a bit by leaving out the potatoes and serving it over rice.Thanks, Velva!:)Valerie
This sounds great! Love the one pot thing and chorizo also! Awesome flavors here for sure!!!
Delicious! And so colorful!
Perfect for the cold winter weather! Really delicious Velva!
