A chill is in the air and it is here to stay. Warm up on cold days with Spicy SweeTango® Apple Sweet Potato Soup. After all, nothing warms the body and soul like a steaming bowl of soup!
Spicy SweeTango® Apple Sweet Potato Soup is a Caribbean-style soup. It is a well-balanced mix of heat and sweet. Jalapeños bring the heat and sweet potatoes and SweeTango® apples bring the sweet.
SweeTango® Apples are a cross between the sweet Honeycrisp apple and the tangy Zestar. They are crispy and sweet with a touch of citrus, honey, and spice. You can find SweeTango® Apples from Applewood Fresh from October through March, aka soup season!
You can adjust the heat in this soup to fit your preference. Tone down the spice by choosing a milder pepper, such as sweet banana pepper. Or, crank up the heat by leaving in a few jalapeño pepper seeds.
Produce Moms Tip: Wear rubber gloves when chopping hot peppers so the heat is not transferred onto your skin.
Garnish this soup with a dollop of sour cream and then add either fresh cilantro, basil, or Italian parsley. Then sprinkle with a few small cubes of apple.
