Add sweet potatoes, cumin, cinnamon, chipotle powder, hot sauce, and chili powder. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, add the salsa followed by the vegetable stock and water.

Bring the pot to a low boil on medium-high heat and then lower to a simmer. Add the black beans, cover and cook for 20 to 30 minutes or until the sweet potatoes can be penetrated easily by a fork and the soup is thickened.
