Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

Chipotle Sweet Potato Soup

If there is one veggie that can be used in both sweet and savory dishes, it’s sweet potatoes! I always have them on hand to simply roast or throw into a brownie recipe and now, soup!  I had yet to explore a sweet potato soup and was intrigued by the concept. For years I steered clear of soups as I had the false impression that they were involved and daunting to make. However, soups are one of the easiest concepts to whip up as it’s...

                            Game day is just around the corner, so I knew I had to whip up some fun concepts! Believe it or not, I didn’t have anything but  various dips and no nachos!
