Squash is very plentiful at my house. I grow numerous varieties and am always looking for new ways to enjoy them. And thankfully, that’s not too difficult. Squash soup is a staple for me but I love to play with the recipe and pump up the flavor. Chipotle is a favorite flavor so I had to utilize it in this soup!
