My Popular Southwestern Shrimp, Corn, and Sweet Potato Soup

A spectacular soup that’s easy and nutritious from my easy, healthier and fun cookbook, Too Hot in the Kitchen: Secrets to Sizzle At Any Age  Honestly, this is truly one of my most popular and personal favorite soup recipes and it is so very easy to make. The sweet potatoes are a great source of fiber and Vitamin C and pair so well with the protein rich shrimp.

Soup makes an easy one-pot meal

I love an easy one-pot dish that requires nothing more than mixing the ingredients and heating. I have even made this in my crockpot, set it to warm, and served hours later. The spicy aroma of chili powder and cumin fills my house with the warm smell of fall. Check out more of my favorite and easy soup recipes
