I love the combination of flavors between the spinach, potatoes, sweet potatoes, and sausage. This is perfect on a fall or winter day.

I didn't have chorizo so I used kielbasa and added chipolte pepper, thyme and cumin. It is a quick and easy soup the family loved. The orange of the sweet potatos and the green of the spinach really made for a colorful presentation.
