The chipotle adds a smoky flavor and quite a bit of spice to the soup. Start with half the amount if you can't take the heat.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a large saucepan, heat the oil over medium. Add the onion. Cook, stirring often, until beginning to soften, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the garlic. Cook, stirring often, until fragrant, about 1 minute longer. 

  • Add the sweet potato and chipotle to the pan. Add the stock and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low. Simmer until the potatoes are tender, about 20 minutes. 

  • Remove the soup from heat. Using an immersion blender directly in the pan, or working in batches with a standard blender, puree the soup and add more stock, if needed, to thin the soup. 

  • Return the soup to the pan if you used a standard blender. Season the soup with salt and pepper (and more adobo sauce for more spice, if you like). Ladle the soup into bowls and sprinkle with cilantro. Serve hot.
