Being cold is my least favourite thing about winter. When I’m on my way home from work that 5 minute walk from the train station to the flat has me freezing and thinking about nothing but a big comforting bowl of food when I get home.

Sometimes it needs to be soup and it needs to be fast. That’s where something like this chipotle cheddar spicy sweet potato soup comes in.

I’ve been making a curry sweet potato soup for a long time and it’s a great comfort food. I think there’s something about that beautiful colour which makes you feel happy.

This time I wanted to go with something a bit spicier and obviously I wanted to add cheese because cheese makes everything better.

The great thing about this is that you can adjust the spice levels to your liking while still getting the smoky flavour of the chipotle. I added a couple of carrots to up the veg content but other than that it’s pretty much pure sweet potato on the veg front which gives it the most delicious sweet, creamy flavour.

So tell me, friends, what are your favourite types of soup? I am usually fairly ambivalent about a broth based soup, choosing to opt for something creamy or thick but recently I’ve been up for something like my chicken and vegetable soup as long as it’s got a lot of meat and stuff floating in it. Must be growing up I guess!

    I’m actually the opposite – I tend to gravitate toward the clear broth soups and steer away from the creamier soups! But the color of this one and the addition of cheese really pull me back the other direction! It sounds delicious!
