Smoky Butternut Squash Soup

  • ACTIVE: 30 MIN

  • STAFF-FAVORITE

This creamy soup gets a little smoky heat from canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce, but then gets cooled down with a swirl of crème fraîche.

  1. 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  2. 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  3. One 3-pound butternut squash, peeled and diced (8 cups)
  4. 1 small canned chipotle in adobo, chopped
  5. 7 cups chicken or turkey stock or low-sodium broth
  6. 2 tablespoons honey
  7. Salt
  8. 1 cup crème fraîche
  9. 1/4 cup finely chopped chives, plus more for garnish
  1. In a large pot, melt the butter. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat until softened. Stir in the squash and chipotle and cook for 1 minute. Add the stock and honey and bring to a boil. Simmer until the squash is tender, about 30 minutes.
  2. Puree the soup until smooth; season with salt.
  3. In a small microwave-safe bowl, stir the crème fraîche with the 1/4 cup of chives. Microwave until just melted, 30 seconds. Serve the soup with a swirl of chive cream and a sprinkling of chives.
