Spicy Sweet Potato Soup

This might very well be one of the yummiest things I've ever made! HERE is the recipe, I followed it as written other than cutting the peanut butter amount in half and we didn't do the tomato topping. I loved it, the kids loved it, and hubby sort of liked it, so I call that a success! It was such an awesome mix of flavors and it was a fairly simple soup to make. I just love sweet potatoes and coincidentally two of the other ingredients are things I used to hate but now love - cilantro and ginger. The peanut butter might seem like a funny addition but it gave it kind of a Thai flavor. And the lime sour cream 'topping' was like icing on the cake. Seriously, so yummy, I can't wait to make it again!

I was going to mention too that last week on a lazy day, we bought one of those convenience store rotisserie chickens for dinner. After we had eaten all the edible parts, I made broth out of its remains. I got about 5 cups of good broth and didn't add any additional ingredients or seasonings. That is what I used for this soup and still have some leftover. I think that's a good way to get some tasty 'free' broth!
