Sweet Potato Bisque

I used to work at Mt. Sinai Hospital in Milwaukee, and they used to serve a soup that they called "Sweet Potato Bisque". This is my attempt to duplicate it. I make this soup at least 5 or 6 times a year. I tend to make things up as I go along, so more or less of anything in this recipe will work.

Helpful Hints

Any kind of hot pepper can be used in place of the habanero, if less heat is prefered, or no peppers at all. Wear gloves when handling whole habanero peppers.
