A note about serious food allergies

Soup is for all times and for all seasons, but this soup sings of winter 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 sunshine replacements… but the sour cream, guacamole, and tortillas on top? Our bowl is already clean: nothing better in winter 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.

Customize It Instructions

  • Meat lovers! If using protein cook before vegetables in Step 3, remove to cook vegetables, and return to soup with sweet potatoes. If using whole chicken breasts, pat dry and cut into 1" dice. Season all over with a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir occasionally in hot pot until chicken reaches minimum internal temperature, 5-7 minutes. If using ground turkey, cook with a pinch of salt and pepper, stirring occasionally, until no pink remains and turkey reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 7-9 minutes.

  1. 1

    Roast the Sweet Potato

    Peel sweet potato and cut into ½" dice. Place sweet potato on prepared baking sheet and toss with 2 tsp. olive oil, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper. Massage oil and seasoning into potato. Spread into a single layer. Roast in hot oven until tender, 14-16 minutes. While sweet potato roasts, prepare ingredients.

  2. 2

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Halve lime. Cut one half into wedges and juice other half. Peel and mince shallot. Stem poblano pepper, seed, and cut into ½" dice. Poblano peppers can vary in spice level; most are mild, but a few can be quite hot. Wash hands and cutting board after prepping.

  3. 3

    Start the Soup

    Place a medium pot over medium heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil. Add shallot and poblano pepper to hot pot and stir occasionally until softened, 3-4 minutes. Stir in seasoning blend and corn until aromatic, 30 seconds.

  4. 4

    Finish the Soup

    Add 1¾ cups water, mirepoix base, ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper to pot. Bring to a simmer. Once simmering, stir occasionally until vegetables are tender, 3-4 minutes. Stir in roasted sweet potato. Remove from burner.

  5. 5
