Chorizo is one of my favorite types of venison sausage. And venison chorizo has so many uses! This soup is a very easy recipe to pull together on a cold, rainy night. From start to finish it takes about 1/2 hour. Serve the sausage soup with tortilla chips and, if it’s too spicy, sour cream. If you don’t have any homemade venison chorizo on hand, you can use any chorizo.
