Pumpkin Pepper Soup

Pumpkin Pepper SoupI am in the pumpkin spirit now, so tonight I made my my Spicy Pumpkin Soup. It is really delicious on a fall day or evening and it only takes a few ingredients. This Pumpkin Soup Recipe is one of my favorite fall soups.

Slightly Spicy Pumpkin Soup

2 Tablespoons butter

2 Tablespoons minced onion

1 15 oz can pumpkin puree

1 14 oz can chicken broth

1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)

1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the minced onion. Once the onion starts to look clear, add the remaining ingredients.  Cook over low heat.

I used 2 percent milk in my soup, but you could also use whole milk.

When you get to the pepper flakes, start with 1/2 teaspoon of red pepper flakes. I like my soup spicy so I use a teaspoon, but you should “pepper” to your liking.

Continue to cook the soup on low until heated through.  There is no need to put through a processor, the soup is already smooth and creamy, but you can if you want it super smooth. This soup goes great with cornbread or dinner rolls.

Update: This is one of the recipes from the first year of blogging, some of the photos are not as beautiful as I would like them to be, but the soup still has the same great flavor.

Makes 4 single servings. Enjoy with a grilled cheese sandwich or some cheese bread.

What is your favorite fall soup?







  1. Yum! I love butternut squash soup so I think I’ll definitely love this!

  2. Oh wow, that sounds fabulous! Thanks for sharing at The Fun In Functional!

  3. That looks really yummy! I like potato soup but this looks so simple to prepare that I may have to give it a try at lunch some time (I don’t think my boys would care for it).

  4. I love pumpkin soup. The simpler, the better to really let the pumpkin shine. This looks awesome…. can’t wait for sweater weather now! Found your link at SNAP! Stopping over from Bulldogs and Brown Sugar

  5. Nothing wrong with some spice! I love that this is simpler than most recipes for pumpkin soup that require 1,000 steps and crazy ingredients! I’d love to have you link this up at my party!

  8. Raquel,
    This looks delicious! I love pumpkin but have never tried pumpkin soup. I will now 🙂 Thanks so much for linking up to Creative Thursday. Can’t wait to see what you share next week! Have a wonderful weekend

  9. Oh yum! I would love this!

    Thanks for joining us at the Keep Calm & Link Up party this week – hope to see you again next week!

  10. Thank you for sharing this recipe. I tried it for lunch and really enjoyed it. I made it with vegetable broth instead of chicken so I needed to add a touch more of seasonings. I added a dash of cumin, a dash of garlic salt and a few parsley flakes. I bought 3 flats of pumpkin last fall when they were on sale so this recipe will come in handy this winter.

  11. Yum! Thanks so much for linking up to my link party last week. I hope you’ll stop by again today to link up some more of your ideas.


    Have a great day!
