  • 6 cups chicken stock
  • 3 cups pumpkin puree (not flavored pie filling)
  • 2 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1/2 tsp allspice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp maple syrup
  • 2 tsp chipotle puree (See Note 1)
  • 3/4 cup Mexican crema creme fraiche or sour cream
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 cup toasted pumpkin seeds


  • Whisk the pumpkin puree into the chicken stock in a large saucepan over medium high heat until smooth. Lower heat to a simmer and add the cinnamon, ginger, allspice, nutmeg, honey, maple syrup and chipotle. Cook for 15 minutes. Add water if the soup gets too thick.
  • Remove from the heat and whisk in 1/4 cup of the Mexican crema and season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Laddle into soup bowls and drizzle remaining crema in circular motion on top and a handful of the pumpkin seeds.


  1. I mash one chipotle pepper, or empty a small can of chipotle peppers and the adobo sauce into a food processor and purée. Store remaining purée in an air tight container in the refrigerator for other uses.
