Spicy Chicken and Sweet Potato Fall Soup

One of my favorite things about Fall is warming up with a delicious bowl of soup. Spicy chicken and sweet potato Fall soup blew me away. It is warm and filling. The sweet potato is complemented really well by savory garlic, chicken, spicy jalapeno and sweet corn. The flavor combinations provide a palate-pleasing punch in every spoonful. Plus, with lean chicken, nutrient packed sweet potatoes, and fresh vegetables, this meal is super healthy. What You’ll Need: (serves 4-6) 2 large {Read More}

This year as we go through the Fruit of the Spirit I was thinking… Hmm… what kind of recipes would fit that theme? And the first one that came to mind is one I grew up with.
