Consider this a middle-eastern approach to chili. Harissa stands in for the usual chili powder for heat, color, and flavor. You can find harissa in powder and paste form but our favorite is salsa-like Mina brand. It comes in both mild and spicy so shop according to your heat preference. We pureed some of the chili to create a super rich and silky base but, if you’re ready to upgrade your typical butternut squash soup to one with a little more personality go ahead and puree all of it. Top with a dollop of Greek yogurt, fresh cilantro, and toasted pumpkin seeds.
