Jalapeno Pumpkin Soup with Chorizo Crumb

As the weather cools I instantly crave cosy comfort food such as this simple pumpkin soup.  You could easily make this recipe in a saucepan on the stovetop, so don’t be put off if you don’t have a Thermomix.

This recipe came to me whilst I was working on my new Thermomix cookbook, a Mexican Thermokitchen. I had been perfecting a Jalapeno soup for the book and started wondering what the soup would be like with chorizo dust.  

The kids love pumpkin soup but because it’s so easy to make we had been having it a lot!! So I started tinkering with my Thermomix pumpkin soup recipe to give it a bit of a revamp. The result is the delicious Mexican style soup with all the goodness of regular pumpkin soup but an extra hit of flavour and a pretty garnish. The kids didn’t even notice that I slipped a jalapeno into the soup!

Why I Love Jalapeno Pumpkin Soup

  • Most of the ingredients in this pumpkin soup are everyday kitchen staples so you may even be able to create this simple pumpkin soup without a trip to the shops.
  • All the ingredients go in the Thermomix and you walk away! Handsfree cooking!
  • It’s a low calorie, high fibre, healthy recipe for winter
  • Leftovers are great for lunch

The Best Soup Garnishes


Let’s talk about this chorizo crumb. The chorizo takes this soup to another flavour level. Half the chorizo is cooked with the pumpkin which infuses the flavour throughout the soup. The remaining chorizo is fried to a delicious, crisp, salty crumb and sprinkled over the soup before serving.


If you would like to up your presentation game, try roasting fresh jalapenos. Once cooked they can be sliced and used as a spicy garnish, adding another level of flavour and warmth to the soup.

Please note, the Jalapeno is optional, you’re welcome to leave it out if you have little children.

Sour Cream

Adding sour cream to the soup is another nice touch. The contrast of colour looks good and sour cream is amazing in soups.

Corn Chips

Yep, that’s right! Corn chips, sometimes it’s a case of “when in Rome” or in this case “when in Mexico” corn chips make a fabulously tasty and crunchy topping to the soup. Just like croutons on a French bisque.
