Heads up soup lovers. I’ve got something truly spectacular for you today.
There is this wonderful group over on Facebook called Food bloggers Recipe swap and Social Media. Just as the name implies,it’s a recipe swap group. In this group, each month we are assigned a blog and we have to cook and blog a dish from that assigned blog. I was assigned to Ali, who blog over at Fix Me A Little Lunch . Super wonderful blog!
There are so many wonderful dishes on her blog it was really difficult for me to choose one, but when I saw her Adobo Sweet Potato Soup recipe,it made it quite easy, as you guys know I’m a sucker for sweet potato and soups, so this was a dream in cooking heaven.
Now, I had to check my pantry and fridge for ingredients, and boy was I so lucky I had about 85% of the ingredients in house , now it’s time to put this recipe together.
But I did swap out a few things, I had no red onions or the adobo chili pepper, but I did have the adobo sauce, I did use my last chili a few days prior, but hey I used a small piece of smoked scotch bonnet with the left over adobo sauce , it was pure perfection
The end result of this soup was a nice smoky , velvety soup with just a hint of heat, the smokiness from the paprika and the adobo sauce made all the difference . So Good!
