Sweet Potato Soup #2

5 Jan

I started out to make tortilla soup and ended up making this because I had too many sweet potatoes and got carried away with everything else.

This is a great meatless soup.

It turned out pretty good.

3 Tablespoons oil

One large diced onion

4  crushed garlic cloves

Two large sliced carrots

Two large peeled and diced sweet potatoes

One diced red pepper

One seeded diced jalapeno

One teaspoon ground cumin

32 ounces chicken broth

One can drained corn

One can drained, rinsed black beans

One can diced tomatoes

1 cup medium  salsa

1/2 cup diced cilantro

Heat the oil

Add the onions and garlic and cook till soft

Add the peppers, carrots, sweet potatoes and season with salt and pepper

Add the cumin and cook till it is fragrant about two minutes.

Then add the broth, corn, beans, salsa and cilantro

Cook till everything is nice and warm. and the potatoes are cooked.

I had about ten  roasted baby potatoes leftover, sliced them and pan fried them with salt and butter.

I put a dollop of sour cream on the soup and then the fried potatoes.

Diced scallions, avocado or chips are also good toppings
