Chicken Tortilla Soup with Sweet Potatoes5:00:00 AM
When fall arrives, I start craving soups. And one of the favorites around my house is tortilla soup. I love to play on variations on tortilla soup, and mixing sweet flavors with the spicy is one of my favorite variations. This variation has sweet potatoes--which turned out to be a perfect match! My husband said it was better than the other ways I've been making tortilla soup--and I've been making it for him for over 8 years! Princess Pea cleaned her plate--3 times! So this recipe is definitely a keeper!
