Pumpkin and Chorizo soup

Because it’s Halloween today and it’s a tradition to eat pumpkin at this time of the year, I was looking for inspiration when I saw this gorgeous recipe in Closet Cooking. I discovered this blog recently and it’s a treasure trove of fantastic recipes, packed with flavours and colours. The guy who writes the blog, Kevin, loves Mexican food and it shows! He has a knack for layering Mexican flavours with an American twist. This soup is no exception but I had to tone it down for my 7 years old so I didn’t add the black beans and the chipotle chillis. It was still an absolute hit for the tastebuds and I will definitely do it again.
