Sweet Potato Chowder

Total Time

Cook 25 mins

This recipe would be excellent for holiday leftovers! Instead of the usual sandwiches or soup, this is a different take on it. I also think this would be great all fall/winter season long!

This was a nice soup. I don't quite get why there's 2 cans of chicken broth, followed by 2 cups water + bouillon... why not all canned broth or all bouillon? Next time I will add an extra sweet potato, and cut back the pepper flakes to 1/4 tsp as my kids found this too spicy. Served with shredded cheddar cheese and oyster cracker it was a nice filling soup- with plenty left over for me to take to work for lunch!
