Spicy Soyrizo Soup with hominy / chayote / cabbage / pinto beans
With spicy soyrizo and a variety of vegetables, this soup has many different textures and flavors.
Smarts: Store-bought salsa is an easy way to build another layer of flavor into the soup. The soup will also get a does of spice from jalapenos (if you choose to use them) and soyrizo, so be sure to use a mild salsa if you prefer less spice.

Preferred the bowl more than the soup, but this was still good!
Delicious and easy!
Vegetarian didn’t like it, could be soyrizo problem. Paleo liked it better than the original carnitas!
Good use of leftover carnitas.
Tasty and easy. Thought it wasn’t quite spicy enough night 1, but the leftovers were perfect.
