A note about serious food allergies
Soup is for all times and for all seasons, but this soup sings of fall to us. The sweet potato, firm outside and tender inside, living up to its name by lending a sweet, filling touch to the proceedings. Slightly spicy poblano and sweet corn are obvious clarion calls for warmth… but the sour cream, guacamole, and tortillas on top? Our bowl is already clean: nothing better in any season than soup. Tip: Having trouble cutting that wobbly sweet potato? Trim off 1/4" along its length and cut that section into 1/2" dice. Turn sweet potato onto its flat side. You now have a flat base to work from while you dice remaining sweet potato.
Due to our just-in-time sourcing model, we may have to send you a
substitute ingredient. Not to worry! We make sure every ingredient
sent to you meets our high quality standards. We’ll keep you
informed should a switch occur, so please check the ingredient
labels in your meal bag.

Meat lovers! If using protein, cook in a large non-stick pan with 2 tsp. olive oil over medium heat. If using Impossible burger, crumble into bite-sized pieces. Stir often, breaking up burger, until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. If using diced chicken breasts, pat dry and season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using ground turkey, break up meat until no pink remains and turkey reaches minimum internal temperature, 7-9 minutes. If using Italian sausage*, break up meat until no pink remains and sausage reaches minimum internal temperature, 4-6 minutes. Add to soup with sweet potatoes in Step 4.
