Recipe

Butternut squash is one of my favorite soups and while I normally reach for the classic version jazzed up with apples, sometimes I am crave something spicy. For this spicy version made in the slow cooker, you add either Ancho chili powder or blended chipotle peppers to amp up the flavor and create something sweet, smoky, and spicy. The reason for chipotles or Ancho chili powder is since it packs a smoky punch that adds great flavor to the soup.
