Spicy Pumpkin Soup

I received the most amazing pumpkin kit from Sprouts Farmer’s Market.  To see what all was in it, check out my Instagram (whatkatiesbaking).  

One of the the items included was canned Organic Pumpkin. 

The options for pumpkin puree are pretty limitless.  When I grabbed this can of pumpkin to make something with, it was a crisp, chilly evening and I was craving something warm, salty, spicy and comforting. I think the most comforting food on a fall-like evening is soup.  Not thin, watery soup, but thick, hearty soup.  So, I found a recipe for spicy pumpkin soup.

Oh. My. Gosh. This soup is amazing and incredibly easy to make.  It’s perfect for cozy fall nights or Sunday football parties.  I highly recommend it!
