Step By Step Directions: Sweet Potato Soup
1 In a large saucepan over medium heat, add the butter. When the butter melts, add the onion and garlic. Saute for 5 minutes or until the onions are tender. Add the chicken broth, sweet potatoes, apple cider, chipotle pepper, and salt. Stir until combined and bring the soup to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 20 minutes or until the sweet potatoes are tender. Remove the pan from the heat.
2 Unless you have a large blender, you will need to puree the soup in batches. Add the soup to a blender. Puree until smooth. Add the soup back to the pan. Place the pan back on the stove over low heat—Cook for 5 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in 2 tablespoons lime juice.
3 In a small bowl, add the sour cream and 2 teaspoons of lime juice. Stir until combined. Spoon the soup into bowls and drizzle the sour cream over the top. Serve hot.
