Ingredients
 

  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 small red onion, chopped finely
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced or grated
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, such as Morton's brand
  • 1 teaspoon ancho chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1 tablespoon tomato paste
  • 15 ounce can pumpkin puree
  • 1-2 cups chicken or vegetable broth
  • 15 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed

Optional for serving:

  • sour cream or Greek yogurt
  • pickled jalapenos
  • toasted pumpkin seeds
  • chopped cilantro

Instructions
 

  • Warm the olive oil in a 3 or 4 quart saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-8 minutes. Add the garlic, chili powder, oregano, cumin and allspice and cook for one more minute before adding the tomato paste. Cook over medium low heat until the tomato paste turns a dark red.
  • Pour in the pumpkin puree and teaspoon of salt. Cook over medium high heat until it just begins to bubble and sputter, then pour 1 cup of broth into the pot. Bring to a simmer, lower the heat and partially cover the pot with a lid. Let the soup simmer for 5-10 minutes.
  • Add the black beans and raise the heat to medium to warm the beans. Taste for seasoning and add more salt if necessary. If the soup seems thick, add more broth until the desired consistency is reached. To serve, ladle into bowls and top with sour cream or other optional garnishes.
