This ultra tasty potato soup works well with stuffing, a turkey dinner, or simply eat it on it’s own.
The color is gorgeous, the texture velvety-smooth. It’s rich even though it only has a kiss of cream. And I love the smoky-spicy chipotle powder with sweet potato.
You could finish this soup with a sprinkling of candied walnuts or pecans, melted bleu cheese topped crostini, drizzle of chili oil, or simply a good vinegar.
