  1. Heat the oil in large pot over medium high heat and add the onion. Sauté until softened, 5-6 minutes. Stir in the garlic, chipotles and cumin and cook another minute until fragrant. Add the sweet potatoes, broth, water, 1 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper. Bring to a boil then reduce heat to a simmer.
  2. Cover and cook 20 minutes until sweet potatoes are tender. Using an immersion blender, puree the soup until smooth. Add the yogurt and continue to puree until it is all incorporated. Alternatively, you can transfer the soup and yogurt to a blender and puree it in batches.
  3. Ladle the soup into bowls and top with a dollop of yogurt. Swirl the yogurt in a decorative pattern and garnish with cilantro.
