    Sue Lau's Note:

    This spicy southwestern soup has a touch of roasted red peppers in it. If you don't want to make your own, you can save time and use ready-prepared. Very warming on a cold day and makes the house smell great!

      Place red bell peppers on a baking sheet and roast, turning several times, until the skin is blackened, about 25-30 minutes.
    3. 3
      While peppers are roasting, place the dried New Mexico chile peppers in a bowl with the boiling water and keep them submerged (about 30 minutes), until they are softened.
    4. 4
      Place the roasted red bell peppers in a bowl and cover the bowl with plastic or Saran wrap and allow to sit for 15 minutes.
    5. 5
      Remove the roasted bell peppers from bowl, (if they're still too hot for you too handle allow them to cool more), and remove blackened skin from peppers and discard (it should come off easily).
    6. 6
      Cut out the stem and remove seeds; slice peppers thinly and set aside.

      Remove New Mexico chiles from their soaking liquid and discard the liquid; remove the stems and seeds; chop the chiles into small pieces and set aside.
    8. 8
      Cook the onion in the oil in a skillet until tender.

    10. 10
      Place chile mixture, along with sweet potatoes and the broth in the crockpot and stir to mix.
    11. 11
      Cover and cook on low for 8-10 hour or on high for 4-6 hours or until the sweet potatoes are tender.
    12. 12
      Remove vegetables from crockpot; puree along with 1- 1 1/2 cups of the broth in a blender or food processor until smooth.
    13. 13

    14. 14

      This soup was worth every second of effort that went into it! I will make this again and again! I did omit the lime zest, but followed the recipe exactly as stated otherwise and it is, hands down, one of the best soups ever!! Highly recommended!!

      Why did i wait so long to try this one???? this is a very special soup that is going straight to my keeper file. i even skipped the roasted red peppers and cilantro; i would go the extra step if i had company, though. i used 2 new mexican chilis and one jalapeno, and it turnd out quite mild. Next time i'll add more, but this was truly delightful as is!
