Chili, Sweet Potato & Butternut Squash Soup

sweet potato and butternut squash soup

There is nothing more tasty on a midweek lunch than a bowl of piping hot chili sweet potato and butternut squash soup. Even more delicious is when it is homemade with a little warm kick of chili and is served with warm homemade bread. We love homemade soup and eat it quite often. It’s the sort of meal where you just grab any vegetables you have to hand and can be very economical to make too.

This recipe is so easy and you will soon have a nutritious family meal. I also find homemade soups are a great way of getting vegetables in to the children.


  • 2 peeled and diced sweet potatoes
  • Peeled and diced butternut squash
  • 1 chopped red chili
  • Veg stock
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons of Creme Fraiche


  • Place the veg, chili and stock in a saucepan and boil until soft
  • Liquidise the soup and season to taste
  • Stir through the creme fraiche
  • Serve pipping hot with crusty bread
  • Soup can be frozen for one month

For a real comfort food meal I like to make this soup for a starter and serve with my homemade steak and kidney pie for mains followed by apple pie.

Are you a fan of homemade soups?

    Mmmm, yummy! Love sweet potato and butternut squash soups.
    A big fan of soups here, they’re a great way of using up leftovers and a sneaky way to increase veg intake.

    I love pumpkin soup, though not where we are at the moment. Too hot for soup, only a cold one! In New Zealand we call a sweet potato a kumera

  17. 22nd July 2017 / 12:42 PM

    I love sweet tasting sounds! . I would have to leave the chilli out, though . I love how sweet potatoes make the texture almost silky

  20. 22nd July 2017 / 4:16 PM

    I like the little kick of chili here. Any thoughts on serving this chilled?

  21. 22nd July 2017 / 4:36 PM

    How interesting! I just made a pot of cream veggie soup. Not nearly as delicious as this looks of course, but I was pretty sure I would be the only one thinking about hot soup during the dog days of summer. Guess great minds think alike 😉

  22. 22nd July 2017 / 9:41 PM

    yum! had a very similar soup for lunch today as it felt very autumnal down here in Surrey 🙂

  23. 23rd July 2017 / 10:23 AM

    I could do with a cup of this now. It’s been a cold winters day here in Melbourne 🙁 and a pot of this soup would work wonders. Glad to connect through Big up you blog. Lorelle 🙂

  24. 23rd July 2017 / 10:32 AM

    Sounds delicious I’ll definitely give this a try!!

  25. 23rd July 2017 / 10:46 AM

    Love a homemade soup although I’d have to omit the chilli. I’m a total wimp #humpdaylinky

  28. 27th July 2017 / 12:38 PM

    we love a home made soup especially when under the weather this sounds amazing #HumpDayLinky

    Would this work without the chilli?

      The amount chili added can be altered to your own personal taste. The soup tastes just as nice without chili
