- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Cumin Seed Ground 2.31 oz.
- 1 teaspoon Simply Organic Chipotle Pepper 2.65 oz.
- 1 teaspoon Frontier Smoked Sea Salt 2.40 oz.
- 3 cups water

In a soup pot, sauté carrots and leeks in olive oil until almost tender.
Add chicken flavored broth powder, water, and squash. Stir together and cook 5 minutes more. Process in a food processor until desired consistency, then pour back into the pot.
Stir in milk and corn. Cook on low heat, stirring often to prevent burning. Add more milk or broth if a thinner soup is desired. Once soup is hot, simmer for 10 minutes to meld flavors.
Add spices. Simmer for 5 minutes more, then stir in lime juice.
Taste and add more chipotle or other spices as desired.
Garnish with cilantro or parsley. Serve immediately as is or with grated cheddar or yogurt on the side.
Also good with corn chips or cornbread.
To make Curried Squash and Corn Chowder, replace milk with coconut milk and spices with 2 teaspoons curry powder.
