Chipotle Pumpkin Soup

Prep: 10 minutes Cook: 15 minutes


This is a spicy variation of a delicious pumpkin soup with black beans that I have been making for years. This tastes great and is easy to make too!


  • 4 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/8 tsp chipotle chili powder
  • 15 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels, drained and rinsed
  • 3/4 cup salsa


Place 1/3 cup of the broth in a large pot. Add the onion and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally for about 3 minutes, then add the chili powder, cumin and chipotle powder. Cook and stir for 1 minute. Add the remaining ingredients and mix well. Bring to a boil, reduce heat and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally to make sure the pumpkin is well mixed into the broth.

Hint: This is wonderful with a scoop of hot brown rice added to each individual serving bowl.
