  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilli peppers
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 (15 ounce) can solid pack pumpkin purée
  • 1 (14 ounce) can chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce


In a food processor or blender, puree the green chillies and sour cream until well blended. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the pumpkin puree, chicken broth, and water. Season with chilli powder, garlic powder and hot pepper sauce. Stir in 1/4 cup of the sour cream mixture.

Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Pour into serving bowls, and spoon a dollop of the sour cream mixture on top. Run a knife or the tip of a spoon through the dollop to swirl.
