We love butternut squash soup and eat it all the time during the fall and winter months. Comforting, nutritious, flavorful and versatile, you really can’t go wrong with butternut squash soup.

To make it even easier to get this luscious soup on the table, I turned it into an easy make-ahead slow cooker soup recipe. Carrots add a hint of sweetness to offset the subtle smokiness and heat from the chipotle peppers in adobo.

For added creaminess and acidity to balance the entire dish, I like to drizzle each bowl with a little plain yogurt right before serving. As an added bonus, topping the soup with cold yogurt is a great way to cool down the dish for hungry toddlers eager to take a bite.

Your spoon is waiting.

    This is delicious, but are you supposed to leave the peppers in when blending?! Sadly, it’s way too hot for my husband, but it has great flavor!
