When Hope visited, I honestly don't remember what I cooked, but Hope sure does. I made a Pumpkin-Chipotle Soup that she has been begging me for the recipe ever since. I haven't been torturing her , but I made up the recipe, and I wanted to make it again to make sure I didn't give her a recipe for disaster. I actually made it in the interim but each time, I didn't think about writing down the ingredients until I was already halfway through. Well this past weekend when it was rainy and cool, I decided it was a perfect time to make Pumpkin Chipotle Soup and I was determined to capture the recipe so I could give it to Hope to recreate at home.
1 small onion chopped
2 tbs olive oil
1 can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 quart chicken stock
1 quart fat free half and half (or real half and half if calories are no issue)
1/2-1 chopped chipotle pepper in adobo sauce(add a little at a time until you get the level of heat you want)
Optional garnishes: crumbled bacon, shredded monterey jack cheese, french fried onions
