  • Chop the onion, jalapeno and carrots
  • Turn on the saute function of the instant pot and spray with non-stick spray. Set for 5 minutes.
  • Add the chopped white onions, jalapeno and carrots to the Instant pot and saute for 5 minutes.
  • While the onion, jalapeno and carrot is cooking, peel and chop the sweet potatoes. 
  • After the onion, jalapeno and carrots are done cooking, add the spices (smoked paprika, chipotle powder, cumin, oregano and salt), vegetable broth and fire roasted tomatoes to the instant pot and stir well. 
  • Add the cubed sweet potatoes and the frozen cauliflower to the rest of the ingredients. 
  • Place the lid on the pressure cooker and make sure the valve is closed to "seal". Turn the instant pot on high pressure for 6 minutes. 
  • After the Instant Pot comes up to pressure and cooks for 6 minutes, manually release the steam by carefully turning the valve to "venting"
  • Once the pressure has been released, remove the lid.
  • Use the immersion blender, blend about 1/3 of the soup so that there is a nice creamy base. 
  • Add the juice of 1 large lime (or 2 small limes),1/4 cup chopped cilantro and 2 cups kale (chopped or torn with your hands into small bits). 
  • Stir well, once kale has wilted, serve hot with favorite toppings
