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.
