    Excited about this one b/c it is so basic—I already had all of the ingredients except chicken stock, so I substituted a half and half mixture of beef stock and water. Quartered and roasted the squash before boiling. Super creamy and love the spicy kick! Will make again for sure. Top w/fresh herbs! - 12/8/11

    I had a butternut squash and was looking for a recipe. I followed the recipe the only change was I only had 4 oz. of cream cheese left. It was excellent and I will make it again - 9/23/10

  • Tasty soup! I didn't have cream cheese, so I added some skim milk. It's probably not as thick, but it helped tone down the cayenne a little. When I make it again, I'll use a little less cayenne so those who can't tolerate the pepper heat can enjoy it too. - 12/26/12
