This delicious sausage soup doesn’t need to simmer for hours to develop great flavor. Thanks to a satisfying combination of spicy Poblano pepper, classic herbs, and an interesting blend of spices, this soup delivers lots of fantastic flavor in just over half an hour.


  • 2 Tbs Olive oil
  • 1 lb. pork sausage
  • 1 medium red pepper, diced
  • ½ medium Poblano pepper, diced
  • 3 celery stalks, diced
  • 1 tsp. dried basil
  • 1 tsp. dried oregano
  • 1 tsp. dried rosemary
  • 1½ tsp. chili powder
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • ½ tsp ground cinnamon
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 6 cups organic chicken stock or bone broth
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1 cup sharp cheese, grated


  1. Heat the olive oil in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add sausage and stir the sausage until it is no longer pink inside, for about 5 minutes. As the sausage cooks, use a wooden spoon or spatula to break it up into bite size pieces.
  2. INSTANT POT: Do step 1 using the Saute button on your pressure cooker.
  3. Add the veggies and spices to the pot. Generously season with salt and black pepper to taste, and stir to combine. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the veggies have softened, around 5-6 minutes. FOR INSTANT POT: Add the veggies and spices, saute 1 more minute.
  4. Pour in the chicken stock and simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the spinach and cook for another 4-5 minutes, or just until the spinach wilts. INSTANT POT: Add chicken stock and spinach. Latch the lid and set Instant Pot to Soup.
  5. INSTANT POT: When soup is done, allow 10 minutes of Natural release, then follow Step 6.
  6. Remove from heat and serve immediately, topped with shredded cheese and some additional diced Poblano pepper, if desired.
  7. Eat and enjoy!


NOTE: Canned Poblano peppers can be hard to find. You can also have dried poblanos on hand and soak them in a little hot water to plump them up for use. Poblano peppers are also called Ancho.

You can also substitute with Anaheim Peppers.

    1. That’s the beauty of cooking your own food, you get to decide what to put in it! Use whatever peppers you prefer!

  1. perhaps you can correct the recipe to include the instructions on when to add and what to do with the celery.

    1. These errors happen, thank you for spotting it! It was supposed to say add the ‘veggies’ and spices and hopefully you were able to figure that out and not have a pile of celery sitting there at the end!
