We decided to take a heart-warming soup with creamy, sweet pumpkin, and really light our asses on fire. Literally. By adding a few chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, we kicked this up a notch and then IMMEDIATELY dialed it the f*>% back down when we realized we got a little too overzealous with the peppers.

After another trial, we found a happy level of heat that didn’t have us sweating and chugging milk, and then yogurt when that was gone. So learn from our missteps and tread lightly with the chiptole peppers. If when all is said and done it is still too hot, use a bit of sugar to cut the heat some, or more milk, although you’ll have a slightly thinner soup if you choose the latter.
