I think we all agree that pumpkin is probably the most popular flavor starting autumn off right and continues through the holidays. Pumpkin is in just about everything from savories to sweets, starting with the traditional pumpkin pie, my favorite chocolate pumpkin cupcakes and this insanely tasty Chipotle Pumpkin Soup!

The chipotle pepper in adobe sauce really gives this soup a nice dose of smokiness that adds some serious flavor. Top it off with with a pinch more of chopped chipotle, cream and toasted pumpkin seeds to garnish and serve it as a starter or as the main meal.
