Baked Potato Soup Remix

Now playing: Robert Palmer - Too Good To Be True (Remix)
via FoxyTunes

I make a fully loaded baked potato soup, but here is a remix using baked sweet potato in the recipe. This version is also vegetarian, and I kicked up the amount of smoked paprika in place of the bacon I usually use.

4 lrg. baked potatoes
2 lrg. baked sweet potato
2 c. vegetable stock
1/2 a red onion diced and sweated

Add all these ingredients to a large soup pot. Using a hand blender, break up the potato, sweet potato, and onion until smooth and evenly blended with the stock.

Stir in:

2 tbsp. smoked paprika
1 tbsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. cayenne pepper
2 tsp. ground cumin
Juice of 1/2 a lemon
salt and pepper

Add water, or more stock until the soup is the consistency you desire. Heat slowly until it bubbles and is heated throughout, turn the heat off. Then stir in:

1/2 c. sour cream

Gently bring back to desired temp. slowly on low heat. Season with salt and pepper to taste and serve.

Top with anything that would be good on a baked potato. Things like chives, more sour cream, cheese, compound butters, toasted nuts...The sky is the limit!
