Spicy Butternut Squash Soup
Creamy, spicy butternut squash soup with 4 different kinds of peppers! A combination of sweet from the squash and spicy from the peppers. Topped with delicious Mexican crema. You can also use sweet pumpkins or sweet potatoes!
- 2 small Butternut squash, halved and seeds removed
- 1 yellow onion, peeled and quartered
- 2 Pablano peppers
- 2 bell peppers
- 2 jalapeño peppers
- 4 Serrano or 2 Habanero peppers
- 4 carrots, cut into chunks
- Sage infused brown butter (1 stick of butter + 10-12 sage leaves)
- 32 ounces chicken stock + more for desired consistency
- 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar
- Mexican crema
- Pumpkin seeds
Preheat pellet grill to 375 degrees F.
Roast all the veggies until the squash is tender.
While the vegetables are roasting, brown some butter in a skillet. When the butter has browned, turn off the heat and add the sage leaves.
Remove peppers to a freezer bag to sweat the skins off.
When squash is done roasting, remove the skin from the squash and add flesh to blender. Add the vegetables and the seeded skinned peppers. Blend on high until smooth. Add the brown butter and pour the mixture into a large Dutch oven. Set the burner on low and add the chicken stock until the soup reaches desired consistency (add more water or chicken stock for a thinner soup).
When you have achieved the desired consistency of the soup, add 2 Tablespoons apple cider vinegar.
Ladle soup into a bowl and top with Mexican crema and pumpkin seeds.
Note: For an extra smooth soup, pass the mixture through a sieve before adding the chicken stock.
