Jalapeno Pumpkin Soup

This is a creamy soup recipe, perfect for the holidays but also great for those cold Winter nights in front of the fire. Limit the amount of broth you include for a thicker soup, but if you prefer it not so thick, you can easily add in more water or broth before turning off the heat and serving. Serve with dollops of sour cream over the top or sprinkled with green onion or fresh chopped basil leaves.
