This squash tortilla soup is a delicious, healthy recipe for a chilly night's dinner. It's full of flavor and lots of vegetables.

This month’s Recipe Redux challenge is called, “Orange You Glad It’s Fall?” Participants are invited to share a recipe based on the orange produce that’s plentiful this time of year. These fall favorites, including pumpkins, carrots, and squash, are full of carotenoid antioxidants. I love pumpkins and carrots, but I decided to go a different route with this challenge.

I don’t like squash, but I do love this squash tortilla soup. I make it over and over during the fall when I get squash from my farm share. It brings many different flavors together, and somehow that distracts my taste buds from the fact that the soup is squash-based. The recipe is very flexible, so you can increase or decrease the quantities listed in the recipe, and you can add celery or whatever other vegetables you have on hand. This is one of my go-to recipes when I’m cooking a meal for a family that has a new baby because the recipe can be doubled easily.

  1. Even though the CSA season ended, our farmers dropped off a small boatload of butternut squash. I bet this would freeze!

    1. You’re a lucky one! I love extra veggies at the end of the season. This soup freezes very well, so go ahead and make a big batch.

  2. Sounds great! I like squash so I may let that flavor shine through a bit more! I broke RD-To-Be, so the pirce point and the fact that a larger batch can be made and saved won me over too!

    1. I hope you like it! You could cut back on the diced chili peppers to make the squash more prominent, or just put in more squash. The recipe is very flexible.

  3. As a college student on a budget, I love anything that costs only $.80! This recipe is perfect for when my friends want me to cook for them!

  4. Love the tortilla/mexican twist to this soup! I make a lot of butternut squash soup in the fall – look forward to trying out this variation.

  5. I usually like my squash right out in the open, but I can appreciate a tasty recipe that keeps them hush-hush for those who are reluctant 😉
