    I made a few changes to bring down the sodium level. I used low sodium vegetable broth and tomatoes. Doing this cut the sodium in half. great recipe!! - 2/25/08

    Great soup, though I never associated sweet potatoes with enchiladas. Very filling. I substituted a can of Rotel-style tomatoes for the tomatoes and jalapenos, and cans of black beans and mexi-style corn. Very thick--almost enchilada filling or maybe I had big yams! - 10/8/08

    Very rich tasting soup. I added 2-3 tbs chili powder & 1/2 tsp smoked chipotle pepper along w/cayenne to give it a darker color. I sprinkled on 1 oz crumbed Mexican cheese & a dab of salsa. My husband didn't know he was eating yams. I loved it!

    This was surprisingly really good. Even my husband likes it. Spicy, warm and filling, perfect for those cold winter months. I threw in a handful of red pepper flakes because I didn't have any cayanne, and it was still great. - 12/3/07

  • Very good - I'd like to try this again with more jalapeno and spices, to get more of an enchilada taste. I pureed the potatoes to get a nice smooth soup base. - 11/17/07
