  • 1 cinnamon stick
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large soup pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and ginger. Cook until soft, stirring occasionally. Add the apples, celery, and sweet potatoes and cook for 5 minutes.
  2. Add the water, broth, and cinnamon stick. Bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are soft. Remove the cinnamon stick and discard. Stir in the chopped chipotle.
