Soup Swap! Chicken Sweet Potato Soup with Chili and Lime

Yesterday, we had our soup swap! It was LOADS of fun. We had 14 people, with 15 varieties of soup (Sally F. brought 2 batches). Each soup was incredibly different, and they all sound AMAZING! Many people went home and started sampling their soups from last night, and all reports so far are good. :) I think people would love to enjoy the recipes, so I will be posting them here as they come in. We cannot wait to do this event again in the fall!

I'll start with Carrie Kimrey's AWESOME and very original Chicken and Sweet Potato Soup with Chili and Lime.

2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp butter
2 medium size yellow onions, diced
1 cup celery, diced
3-4 garlic cloves
2 roasted jalapenos or more
1 tsp basil
1 tsp cumin
2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp black pepper
3-4 med size sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
8 c chicken broth
3 bay leaves
1 chicken, boiled and picked
1/4 c cilantro
juice of one lime

Heat oil and butter, cook onion til almost caramelized, add celery and cook x 10 min, add garlic and cook 30 seconds, don't brown it. Add peppers and next 4 ingredients, cook x 2 minutes, add sweet potatoes, broth, bay leaves, bring to low boil. Reduce heat and simmer x 40 minutes or til potatoes tender. Stir in chicken and cook til heated through. Brush corn tortillas with olive oil, sprinkle with coarse salt and bake at 400 x 10 minutes and serve with soup.

(Carrie's note: This is a rough draft, I don't usually follow recipes as they are written. )

It was so good, we ate the whole container of "swapped" chicken sweet potato soup the first evening. So good, that we made our own batch tonight, sans the lime juice.
