Wagons ho! The pumpkins are moving west. This soup has the warm smoky flavor of the southwest with the color of the Arizona mounts. Made as written. Garnishing with a dollop of sour cream with lime is a must for this wonderful soup as it adds so much to the depth of it's flavor. Thanks so much for the post.
This is one of the spiciest dishes I have ever eaten. The flavor was difficult to taste through the spiciness. I put cinnamon and sour cream on the soup to make it bearable. If made again, it will have less of the spicy chiles so the pumpkin flavor can come through.
