Fabulous soup! I don't understand why others thought it was boring because we thought the flavors were wonderful! But to each their own, right? I low-boil simmered it on the stovetop (med heat for my stove) for 30 minutes and it was perfectly done. I also toasted the spices with the onions and garlic in the last minute or so of sauteeing. It didn't even need the sour cream, but that added a nice rich dimension (I didn't add any but DH did and I tried his). Even the baby loved it - and there is definitely a nice layering of spice. A+ thanks, Lysa! We will be making this often!!
We made a bunch of changes, most of which were suggested here. I sauteed two small onions with the spices (eyeballed) in a skillet, and then added a carton of chicken broth, the tomatoes, three sweet potatoes (unpeeled), and some hot sauce. We forgot the corn, but added some leftover ham, which I would highly recommend. You could also use sausage. I simmered it for about an hour, and then saved the soup for the next day. Delicious.
I came back to give this an additional star - it reheats so well and makes a lovely lunch. I made a half recipe on the stovetop and found this recipe to be both simple and tasty. I added a liberal amount of hot sauce and enjoyed it very much. I've tried it with and without sour cream and enjoyed it both ways...would have added lime if I had it.
I made 1/2 recipe as written with the addition of 1/2 teaspoon of chipolte spice. It does take a while for the sweet potatoes to cook - allow at least 7 hours on low in the crock pot. Excellent.
Fantastic receipe! I used low-sodium veggie broth in place of the chicken broth and it was a great vegetarian recipe. In place of the corriander I used a little smoked paprika. I made it on the stove top and simmered it for 30 minutes, then used an immersion blender for a great consistency. I added crushed tortilla chips for some salt. Delish!
This was our first venture into sweet potatoes, and was tasty and filling. Like many soups, it made a LOT for just the two of us. We did it on the stovetop (not good about planning ahead) and it simmered up just fine.
Great recipe. I used beer instead of chicken broth, added about a 1/4 of chopped jalapenos, and some chicken breast. Great stuff.
Great soup, and easy to make. I microwaved the sweet potato for a few minutes and then put everything together in a pot, simmered for a hour. I also added cooked chicken. Everyone liked it!
I made this exactly as stated in the recipe. I didn't care for this soup. I was hoping for more of a smooth soup like a squash soup. The flavor was okay, but nothing exciting that would make me want this soup again.
LOVE this soup!!! Kid friendly. Not too spicy but just enough. I only peeled my potatoes where the skin was rough and the soup was still awesome! I will make this again!!
