Butternut Squash soup – yes, I jumped on the bandwagon. I’ve always been a fan of this soup, but this recipe takes the cake. Handsome and I found this soup last year and I was surprised that it was so delicious. Now? It’s literally Handsome’s favorite. I repeat – Butternut Squash soup is his FAVORITE – over chili, over broccoli cheese, over chicken noodle. Guys. This is huge.
Why is this soup so fabulous? So many reasons. First, it’s SO easy. (haha – bless my heart, of course my butternut squash soup is easy – Handsome always makes it!) Second, it’s smooth and creamy and oh-so-delicious. Third, and most important, this soup has a slight KICK. Cayenne and black pepper give this butternut squash soup something extra.
Seriously, I could literally eat this butternut squash soup ALL. DAY. LONG. I can’t get it in my mouth fast enough. Curse it for being so delicious and rich and filling!

If you’re not feeling up to a creamy Butternut squash soup, then I HIGHLY recommend making my Loaded Potato Soup. It’s DIVINE.
