The recipe calls for canned chipotles - they add quite a kick! The recipe calls for canned chipotles - they add quite a kick!
Number of Servings: 8


    2 tbsp olive oil
    2 cups butternut squash, peeled, seeded and cut into chunks
    1 small yellow onion, finely chopped
    1/4 cup chopped celery
    1/2 cup chopped carrot
    3 cloves garlic, minced
    2 canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, seeded and minced
    1 tbsp chopped fresh basil
    1 tbsp chopped fresh parsley (I use cilantro)
    1 tsp cumin
    1 - 15 oz can diced tomatoes
    2 quarts chicken broth
    1 cup corn kernels, fresh, frozen or canned
    2 limes, cut into wedges


Heat the olive oil in a deep pot over medium high heat. Stir in the squash, and cook until it begins to soften, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the onion, celery and carrots. Cook until the onion is transparent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the garlic, chipotle peppers, basil, parsley and cumin; cook 2 minutes more. Mix in the tomatoes and chicken broth. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until the vegetables are tender, about 30 minutes. Stir in the cannelli beans and the corn' cook just until heated through. To serve, ladle the soup into bowls, squeeze lime juice over each bowl. (Optional: top with tortilla chips, a dollop of sour cream and a sprinkling of mexican cheese - not included in recipe).

    My husband brought home Mexican Green Squash and I not know how to cook them. He told me they are the same as other squash. So I look up recipes to try something different and I found this one. The dish is wonderful! I added grounded cilantro and ground beef instead of the beans. The Best! - 3/23/18
