Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

spicy sweet potato

Winter becomes awesome with soups. Sweet potatoes are the best. I had a fear whether the soup will be sweet. I want something spicy and hot. I thought of the method of making some southwest soup. I just adapted the same method for making this spicy sweet potato soup. It was really filling. One whole bowl of soup was completely enough to have it as a lunch. Having soups and salads really make weight loss faster. Soups with very less oil and salads with low fat dressing are in my menu for weight loss lunch and dinner. This sweet potato soup is my recent favorite thing. It was awesome.
