Spicy Squash Soup

Cream of  Butternut Squash and Chile SoupI was so excited when the folks over at Full Plate Living shared these soup recipes using butternut squash! While I can’t wait to try the chili, my choice for this recipe was the pureed Butternut Squash Soup. I decided to go spicy, though, and put in some of the green chile we got this week, too. This was a great soup to go with grilled meat and cheese sandwiches for a light weeknight meal. I even got a couple of quick “to dos” done while I was waiting for the squash to cook.
