Thickened with sweet potatoes and spiced up with jalapeños, this soup will warm your soul even on the chilliest of nights.
I do love sweet potatoes!! I enjoy them fixed up many different ways, but sweet potatoes cooked up in soup seem to be my passion at the moment.
It has been a long cold winter and according to the ground hog six more weeks of winter are on the way!! I will be eating a lot of soup to be cozy and warm…Print
