Pumpkin Pepper Soup from Organized Island

2 Tablespoons butter
2 Tablespoons minced onion
1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
1 14 oz can chicken broth
1/2 cup milk (I used 2%)
1/2 to 1 teaspoon red pepper flakes

Melt the butter in a sauce pan and add the minced onion. Once the onion starts to look clear, add the remaining ingredients. Cook over low heat.

Continue to cook the soup on low until heated through. There is no need to put through a processor, the soup is already smooth and creamy, but you can if you want it super smooth. This soup goes great with cornbread or dinner rolls.

Or, eat it with a grilled cheese! Just make sure the bread is super soft.
