  1. Combine chicken stock, sweet potatoes, ham, celery, and onion in a stockpot; bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until sweet potatoes are tender, 10 to 15 minutes. Stir green bell pepper, carrot, corn, garlic, basil, parsley flakes, black pepper, and salt into soup and simmer until vegetables are softened, 5 to 10 minutes.
  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium-low heat; whisk flour into butter using a fork. Cook and stir mixture until thickened, about 1 minute. Slowly stir milk into butter-flour mixture until completely smooth; continue cooking and stirring over medium-low heat until thickened, 4 to 5 more minutes. Stir Cheddar cheese into milk mixture until melted and smooth.
  3. Stir milk-Cheddar cheese mixture into soup; cook until thickened and heated through, about 5 minutes.

I added some fennel, and instead of boring diced ham pulled out some pancetta from the freezer to really send it over the top. Super yummy, savory Fall soup. I served with some fresh sourdough ...

Mostly healthy, easy, and delicious! I added some red bell pepper, replaced the parsley with a basic Italian seasoning because I had it on hand. I used some homemade chicken stock that I had in ...

I was a little hesitant, putting sweet potatoes in my soup, but it was delicious.

SO SO SO GOOD!! I will make this over and over again! I added a red pepper instead of green, any color would be delicious. And I added a little more chicken stock than it called for because I us...
