Spicy Spanish Bean Soup

I just can't get enough soup this winter! It has been so snowy and cold this week and this soup was perfect to cast off the chill.

1 Tbsp olive oil
1 medium onion
1 bunch cilantro
1/2 tsp oregano
1 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp paprika
1-2 chili peppers (depends on how much spice you want)
2 chorizo sausages, chopped into pieces
2 cups garbanzo beans
3 potatoes, cut into thin slices
1/2 cup olives, chopped
1 red pepper (I used the roasted kind that comes in a jar)
1 cup tomato sauce
3-4 cups chicken broth
cheese or sour cream to garnish (optional)

Saute the onion, garlic until beginning to soften. Then add oregano, cumin, paprika, chilies and sausages in a large soup pot. Add the rest of the ingredients and simmer for 20-30 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.
