Comfort food in the cold

I believe that soup is the most warming, comforting food you can get in the winter, and in the Siberian minus 15C cold it is more of a lifesaver. Yep, we are freezing here. Instead of preparing myself for the Spring, I am stuck in the extreme cold and snow. To me winter supposed to end on the 31st of January. It should snow in December, that I find romantic. I love to do my Christmas shopping in snow but that is about it. 

So to keep myself warm, I had to cook something that heats me from the inside. Simple yet very tasty soup with chickpeas, chorizo, tomato and hot hot hot very hot chili. Trust me, a sip from this and you will have no problem with the cold.
