This is a one pot meal. Just hand over the biscuits and we are good to go. What a lovely blend of ingredients and spices.


i totally loved this, too. it also keeps well in the fridge, i've been eating it for a week!


This was excellent - but I added a ton of stuff to it...
I used 2 cans of tomatoes and added a can of corn, mexican oregano, chipotle powder, cayenne,  cumin, cilantro, chili powder and 2 bouillon cubes.
More like a chili, but soooo delicious!
The butternut squash is amazing in this!!


I really liked this recipe! I used a dash of chipotle powder as I didn't have an acutal chipotle pepper on hand. I put some toffuti sour cream on it and some green onions. I am looking forward to making this again! Thanks for the recipe. :)


This is very tasty, more like a butternut squash chili than soup. I followed the recipe pretty much exactly, though I didn't have chipotle pepper so I added a couple of dashes of red pepper flakes. I had to add about 2 cups of water total. Very yummy and filling, thanks! ;)b


This soup is very good. I assume "a can" of beans is like 2 cups? I boil my own. I added like 2 cups of squash chunks, but it needed a bit more liquid as it cooked. I didn't have any chipotle so I added a touch of spicy salsa. Delicious!
