Coconut Pumpkin Chipotle Soup

Pumpkin, meet Chipotle. Chipotle, meet Pumpkin. Actually, you probably have already been getting to know each other hanging out in the fridge together in all your surplus glory.
As you may have guessed, from the number of posts involving the aforementioned ingredients, I have had leftovers of these two guys in the fridge for a while. So, why not combine them together? And of course, add coconut milk because that makes soups sooo rich and delicious. This soup is sweet, spicy, and creamy all at the same time.
This would also be great with chicken or shrimp added in- kind of like Coconut Shrimp Curry. On that note- go crazy with the add ins! Potatoes, zucchini…the possibilities are endless.
