You won’t believe how easy this soup is to make! It only takes about 10 minutes to make yet it has a delicious and complex taste that makes you think it took hours.
This is my sister’s recipe and it is unexpectedly delicious! I say that because it is not really a pumpkin spice recipe, even though it does have pumpkin and cinnamon in it. It is very creamy and looks as though it has lots of cheddar cheese in it. But there is no cheese in it at all. Instead, the pumpkin gives it a vibrant color.
This soup has enough corn to give it some texture, yet the half and half in it makes it rich and creamy.
Other than giving the chowder an interesting flavor, the pumpkin completely incorporates into the soup and adds to the creaminess. You won’t find any pumpkin pieces here.
Garnish this soup with either toasted pumpkin seeds or pumpkin spice seeds to add a little crunch to it.
Let me know if you enjoy this chowder and I will pass your compliments along to my sister!
