This delicious, creamy soup was a great hit with our taste-testers, both children and adults. The evaporated milk gives it a richness that suggests it is higher in fat than it actually is. The addition of sweet potatoe and red pepper helps increase your intake of beta caroetene and vitamin C.
Tip: When using margarine, choose a non-hydrogenated version to limit consumption of trans fats. If you choose to prepare this recipe in a slow cooker instead of on the stovetop, wait to add the milk until about 30 minutes before cooking is completed; cook on High until heated through.
