Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Post by Puca! » Sat Jan 13, 2018 6:57 pm

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium yellow onion, diced
2 ribs celery, diced
2 carrots, peeled and diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds sweet potatoes, about 2 large, peeled and cubed
4 cups chicken or vegetable broth
2 to 4 canned chipotle chiles in adobo, chopped
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice (I use bottled.)
Black pepper

Heat the olive oil on medium low in a large soup pot, and cook the onions, celery and carrot for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add the garlic and cook for one more minute.

Add the sweet potatoes, broth, chipotles, ginger, cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg to the pot. Bring to a boil and then simmer, covered, for 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Turn off the heat and let the soup cool for 10 minutes.

In batches, puree the cooled soup in the blender. If you prefer, you can use an immersion blender in the pot instead. Once the soup has been pureed, stir in the lime juice and add salt and black pepper to taste.

Serve topped with a dollop of sour cream.
