Pumpkin and Chili Soup Recipe


Pumpkin and Chili Soup

1 can (29 oz.) of Libby’s 100% Pure Pumpkin

¼ lb. bacon

2-3 Serrano chilies (or other medium-hot chilies)

2 onions

1 Tbsp. butter

2 tsp. cumin

9 cups Kitchen Basic Chicken Broth

1 ½ cups grated Swiss or Muenster cheese

3 Tbsp. chopped parsley


Chop the bacon.  Remove the seeds from the chilies and mince the flesh.  Chop the onions.

In a soup, warm the butter and sauté the chopped bacon on medium until almost crisp.  Add onions and sauté for about 5 minutes.  Add the pumpkin, chilies, cumin and broth.  Bring to a boil; reduce to a simmer and cook for 20 minutes.

As it cooks, grate the cheese and chop the parsley.  Make sure the soup is warmed through but not boiling when you add them.

4-6 servings
