Sweet Potato, Black Bean, and Red Quinoa Soup

This is a nice soup for a rainy spring day! It's packed with protein and nutrition and a little spicy!


1 cup Red Quinoa
1 cup Black Beans
2 Sweet Potatoes
2 stalks Celery
1 Yellow Onion
1 Tomato
1 Jalepeno
1 Serano Pepper
1 TBS Chipotle Chili Powder
2 tsps Smoked Paprika
2 tsps Cumin
2 tsps Salt
2 cloves Garlic
Lime Sour Cream
2 TBS Cooking Oil
4-6 cups vegetable broth
1 dark Beer

Make a puree of the peppers, tomato, cilantro, and garlic. It will look like a salsa.
In a large dutch oven or soup pot, saute the onions, salsa mix and celery in the oil until soft. Add in the diced sweet potato, quinoa, beans, spices, broth, and on bottle of beer. Simmer until sweet potatoes and quinoa are soft. Add more spice to taste. Garnish with sour cream, lime, and fresh cilantro.
