We interrupt our regularly scheduled pumpkin obsession to bring you something to help you warm up, take the chill off, and get cozy. Soup. The ultimate comfort food. We’ve had some really lovely below normal days where the mercury hasn’t reached 70° and I put on socks and real shoes and a vest. Ok, so maybe it’s not cool enough for a jacket with sleeves, but I’ll take any weather allowing me to wear more than one layer of anything.
This recipe is a delicious way to celebrate fall in the desert (or anywhere, for that matter). It’s also a great recipe if you want soup, but don’t necessarily want to spend all day cooking, and waiting, and simmering, and skimming. It goes together really fast and is flavorful enough to serve immediately. None of that waiting a couple of days for the flavors to mingle…although, they will, and it’ll be even more delicious. Enjoy!
