This soup was so good! On it's own, it was delicious, but I had quite a bit left over and we didn't want soup days in a row. So I wouldn't waste it, I figured this would be a somewhat healthy sauce. I made this soup a base for sauce for baked enchiladas! My mom and I loved it. I definitely recommend giving this one a try especially since it can be utilized for another recipe later.

First time making a soup with sweet potatoes and it's crazy delicious. The best part is the jalapeño pepper to complement the southwest flavors. I impressed myself, I didn't know I could make something so good at home!

Followed recipe exactly and this was delicious! Got rave reviews from everyone. I used a large jalapeño and added half the seeds...it was perfect for my crowd but might have been too spicy for some. Great texture and depth of flavors. Will definitely make again!
