Sweet Potato Soup #2
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
