Serves: 4 

  • 1/2 (220g) tin diced green chillies
  • 4 tablespoons soured cream
  • 425g pumpkin puree
  • 400ml chicken stock
  • 125ml water

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. In a food processor or liquidiser, puree the green chillies and soured cream until well blended. Set aside. In a medium saucepan, over medium-high heat, combine the pumpkin puree, chicken stock and water. Season with chilli powder, garlic granules and hot pepper sauce. Stir in 4 tablespoons of the soured cream mixture.
  2. Bring to the boil, then reduce heat to medium and simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes. Pour into serving bowls and spoon a dollop of the soured cream mixture on top. Run a knife or the tip of a spoon through the dollop to swirl.


Tinned green chillies can be purchased in Hispanic speciality shops or online. Alternatively, you can use fresh chillies to taste.
