Sweet Potato Soup Recipe

January 11th, 2011 by Pamela Murski

We love soup just about any time of the year at the ranch but during the Fall and Winter is seems to be a weekly staple on our lunch and dinner table.  This is a lovely Fall soup when the sweet potatoes and apples are at their peak.  You will find soup included in many of our culinary events and cooking classes at the B&B.  Keep an extra pot of this soup in the  freezer for when unexpected guests arrive.  Just reheat, add a hearty salad with  nuts, farmstead cheese and bottle of local wine and you have a fine supper for  impromptu entertaining.

Tortilla Soup with Chicken, Tomatoes & Avocado Recipe

Tortilla Soup with Chicken, Avocado & White Mexican Cheese

Nothing says “Fall” better than a really good bowl of delicious soup!  Earthy, slightly spicy, sublime, down home good is how I describe really good homemade tortilla soup.  The soup is simple to make and is even better the day after it is made.  Serve it with chunks of hearth style bread for soaking up all the delicious juices while savoring every bite.  Fresh avocado and Mexican white cheese is a must!  Pair it with a spicy red wine, such as the  “Saucy Red” from our local “Windy Winery” located just a few miles down  from the B&B.
