Have You Been a Good Little Foodie This Year Recipe Challenge

A. Why have you been a good foodie this year?
    I have been a good foodie this year by reamaining true to my passions about food and all that I can create with it.  Just recently I was given the opportunity to become a freelance writer for Fair Oaks Patch  (, a community based online newsletter, sharing with my neighborhood all about FOOD!  Super first article was posted this week!!!

B. What gift from Marx Foods you want for the holidays?
    The gift I would love to receive from Marx Foods would be the saffron threads as they can be somewhat hard to come by and how I would love to create a classic paella using them!

Marx Foods: Soyrizo Double Potato Soup

I'm fortunate enough to have been given many opportunities to fulfill my passion and create new recipes with the help of Marx Foods gourmet food products.  This soup is by far a favorite and definitely a keeper, thanks Marx Foods!

Soyrizo Double Potato Soup

Marx Foods Dried Guajillo Peppers

Serves: 4
Prep: 15 minutes
Cook: 45 minutes

1 T. olive oil
12 oz. soyrizo
1 medium onion, chopped
4 carrots, peeled and sliced thin
6 c. chicken broth
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 Marx Foods dried guajillo pepper, reconstituted and minced
1 t. dried Mexican oregano
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and diced
2 Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and diced
3 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 T. cilantro, minced, plus 4 sprigs for garnish
1/4 c. sour cream
1 avocado, pitted and diced or sliced
1 Clementine orange, cut in 1/4

    Heat oil over medium high in a large sauce pot and add soyrizo.  Cook until lightly browned about 8 to 10 minutes.  Using a slotted spoon scoop soyrizo into a bowl and set aside. 
    To same pot add onion and cook 3 to 5 minutes stirring often.  Add carrots and cook another 5 minutes.  Deglaze pot with broth scraping bottom of pan clean.  Stir in garlic, dried oregano, Marx Foods guajillo pepper, potatoes and tomatoes.  Bring to a boil, reduce heat to low and simmer about 20 to 25 minutes for potatoes to cook and flavors to meld.
