Enjoyable, warming recipe. I made a couple of changes - I had to omit the onion (I was serving a guest who is allergic) so I added some green pepper, but I definitely think it would be great with onion. I added cayenne pepper instead of jalapeno chile, as it was on hand. I was a little nervous about the amount of stock (thought it wouldn't be enough), but I'm glad I followed the ingredients because I forgot how much liquid would be produced by all of those veggies simmering! I served it garnished with roasted pumpkin seeds, which added a nice crunch. Thanks for sharing!
