A smooth and creamy sweet potato soup with hints of smoked Chipotle chili!

This creamy sweet potato soup with steaming Chipotle peppers warms the body and soul; the perfect comfort food! It starts with onions and peppers for vegetables, Garlic, Chipotle peppers in Adobo Sauce, cumin, peppers and oregano for taste and vegetable broth, tomatoes and sweet potatoes! Everything is cooked until the sweet potatoes are tender before some of them are mashed into the soup, making it thick and creamy. (I like to leave some of the sweet potato pieces for texture in the soup, but you can mash them all up too.) The soup is supplemented with a little lime juice and fresh cilantro. I like to top this Chipotle sweet potato soup with sour cream or Pepitas and crumbled cheese!

Top with crispy fried Chorizo and salsa Macha (chili oil)!

Add Quinoa and spinach for a heartier, healthier Version!
