Video #10 – Chicken, Squash and Tortilla Soup

There is a new video out. This one is all about the soup. I made a very delicious, healthy chicken soup, that was really more like a chili, with all kinds of vegetables, black beans and squash (that was actually a small pumpkin). Since it is the beginning of pumpkin season here in the United States, and I just bought a bunch, I decided it is time to start putting pumpkin into my recipes again. I love pumpkin. In my video, I misspoke; I said it backwards. Leave it to me to get things backwards. In America, we call different varieties of pumpkins squash, but the rest of the world knows them all as pumpkin. I also said chili peppers when I meant to say chili powder. I am always getting my tongue tied. πŸ™‚

This soup/chili had a little bit of everything in it. It was loaded with goodness and fresh vegetables. It is a “kitchen sink” kind of soup, just the way I like my soups too. I like my soups hearty, that make a meal in and of themselves. πŸ™‚
