Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Submitted by: DANYA007
Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Introduction

This is one of my favorite soups! Slightly sweet with a kick! The chipotle en adobo peppers can be found at a regular grocery store where the authentic mexican ingredients are. They are in a can and only one pepper is plenty for this whole pot of soup. This is one of my favorite soups! Slightly sweet with a kick!

Ingredients

    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 white onion, chopped
    2 tablespoons packed brown sugar
    4-5 garlic cloves, minced
    2-3 teaspoons minced and peeled fresh ginger
    1 chipotle en adobo, chopped
    3 sweet potatoes (about 2 pounds), chopped
    6 cups chicken broth (or veg. broth)
    3/4 cup dry white wine
    pinch of salt
    1/4 tsp black pepper
    1- 8 oz can evaporated milk (non or lowfat)
    2 teaspoons grated lime zest
    2 teaspoons fresh lime juice

Directions

Heat the oil in a large stock pot over medium high heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until tender. Add the sugar, garlic, ginger, and chipotle pepper; cook for about 2 minutes

Stir in the Sweet potatoes, broth, wine, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, stirring occasionally , until fork-tender, about 25 minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat; let the mixture cool for a few minutes. Transfer the mixture to a food processor or blender and puree (I use one of those handheld Braun mixers right in the pot). Return soup to pot. Stir in evaporated milk and return to a simmer. Remove from heat and stir in the lime zest and juice. Enjoy! Easy to freeze in 1 serving containers...makes a great lunch to go if you have access to a microwave.

    Yummy with a bit of a kick. Substituted apple juice for the wine (allergy) and it was great!!! Leftovers will be great for tomorrows lunch! - 2/2/08

    Wow - this IS good! Fun combination of flavors, but somehow the sweet potatoes, spicy chipotle peppers and zesty lime works together beautifully. I used a potato masher in the pot & had a not-quite-smooth texture which I really liked. Will definitely make again! - 5/3/07

    I really loved this recipe. As I am diabetic, I decided to leave out the sugar, and I'm sure it didn't need any as the sweet potato was sweet enough. I used ordinary skimmed milk as well, since I have never seen low or fat free evaporated. - 9/17/12

    I'm in college and I looked up this recipe after having a soup by the same name at a restaurant. This one is even better, and easy to make! My roommates love it too, and there is plenty to go around. - 10/22/09

    Incredible!!! It was really tasty exactly as written. My husband likes to add a little dollop of fat free sour cream. I prefer it just as it is. - 8/22/09

    This could become a staple for me as well. Used one and a half peppers instead of one, and it had almost too much kick. Great way to get more veggies! - 8/1/07

    This is unspeakably awesome! Next time, however, I'm going to follow the directions and add only ONE pepper instead of the whole can. Lucky for me, I like spicy food. Also, I noticed the peppers aren't listed in the nutrition info. It only adds 15 calories per pepper though. - 11/11/12

    OMG!! THE BEST EVER!!! However I did add chunks of chicken to it. AND i did not have wine on hand but for some reason had some sort of pink champagne and used that. SO DELICIOUS!!! - 2/9/12

    This soup needed more flavor for me. It has plenty of spice, but needed flavor. Tried the suggestion of using it as sauce for a curry dish - bland. Ended up mixing it with a tomato based soup and that saved it from the trash. If I make it again, it will need to be overhauled first. - 2/7/12

  • This soup was great. I roasted the sweet potatoes before I made the soup and it all came together in ten mins, and I also did not have wine so I used 1/2 cup of applesauce came out just fine. I used a extra chiptole and extra ginger, and it was extra spicy.Will make again. - 11/21/11
