Jamaican Pumpkin Soup

Recipe by DocT3900

My wife and I went to the Grand Lido Braco resort in Jamaica and as soon as we arrived to the property, the first thing I wanted to do was to eat some Jamaican food. They brought out some Jamaican Pumpkin Soup and it was great. Then, it was onto the Jerk Chicken w/ Rice & Peas. But that's for another time...Here's the soup.

Delicious! Didn't have scotch bonnet pepper, so used a habanero pepper. Added just the right heat. My husband said it was one of the best soups he's had in a long time :)
