Creamy Pumpkin Fiesta Chicken Soup #pumpkinweek

Are you ready for another great pumpkin recipe? 

Today’s recipe is sponsored by Cabot Cheese.

I’ve worked with Cabot in the past and they always have a wonderful selection of cheeses and all thing dairy!

Today I decided to go the savory route.

Have you ever noticed that, even when pumpkin is being used as a savory ingredient (especially in soup) that cinnamon and sugar still end up being involved?

I can’t handle stuff like that – it is just too much for my palate to comprehend!

So in this recipe, the pumpkin is treated more like a winter squash and paired with all sorts of great veggies!  With chicken added as the protein, this soup makes a fabulous main dish – I highly recommend serving this with a side of tortilla chips!
