Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

Updated on November 11, 2012

American Southwest Bowl of Fire

Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

Sometimes the idea of cooking a ham, roast, or turkey is just too complicated and time consuming. I personally love making interesting soups.

If you like sweet, and you like spicy; this may very well become one of your new comfort foods. Easy to prepare, and delicious, with a beautiful combination of flavors and colors, this recipe is easy to add variations to. One of my all time favorites, Enjoy!

Side Note: I like it a little hotter. By adding 1 more chili pepper and using red pepper instead of white pepper, it kicks things up to speed.
