My home state is famous for cheese, which I use in many recipes such as this creamy soup. Cheddar gives it a sunny color and tantalizing taste. A good meal starter, it's also a great choice for a light lunch or supper when teamed with a salad and bread.

Roasted jalapeno and red peppers plus garlic accent the delicate sweet potato flavor in this golden soup. "The recipe is from my grandmother, who loved making soups that were fast, easy and great-tasting," relates Suzan Wiener of Spring Hill, Florida. "My family always asks for seconds."
