Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

"This is a wonderful, quick soup that works as a main dish with a compliment of cornbread, or as a great accent dish with your Mexican favorites! Even my kids gobble this one down! Garnish with shredded Monterey Jack cheese and freshly chopped cilantro. This soup holds well in a slow cooker set on Low!"

  1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the flour and cook until the flour has turned golden brown, about 3 minutes. Whisk in the vegetable stock and bring to a boil over high heat. Whisk in the pumpkin puree until no lumps remain, then add the chipotle peppers, half-and-half cream, sofrito, Worcestershire sauce, salt, and paprika. Return to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low, and cook for 8 minutes until thickened and hot.

This is a delicious, smoky and unexpected twist on basic pumpkin soup. You can find the chipotle peppers and the sofrito in the Hispanic section of your grocery store. Save the leftover chipot...

Well, this is very good. I feel like it's the perfect base to be truly excellent, it's just missing a little something. I ended up only using 1 cup of 1/2 & 1/2 because the roux and the pumpki...

I used chicken stock instead of vegetable because that is what I had and I subbed no fat evaporated milk for the half and half. We really liked the complement of the smokey heat and the creamy ...

Very good. I used the evaporated milk.

This is a good start to a great soup! Without the added additions I found it to be a bit bland. I sautéed an onion before adding the flour, and after adding all ingredients I also added garlic, ...

Very good! I added garlic and minced sweet onion. Cayenne and annato seed powder for more heat and some Splenda brown sugar for a touch of sweetness. It was amazing! Two ladies at work trie...
