This is a welcome and refreshing variation on sweet potato soup recipes! I added a bit of habanero powder for a hint of heat because I had handy it but chipotle or jalapeño would be suitable as well.

I added ground turkey sausage and a bit of a roasted jalapeno for a kick. It was a hit at home! Serve with garlic breadsticks to dip...yum!

I love the diverse flavors. It's not something I'd want to eat every day, but it's fun for something different.
