Directions
1 – Combine chiles, 1/4 cup sour cream, and cilantro in food processor or blender; process until smooth.*

2 – Combine pumpkin, broth, water, cumin, chili powder, garlic powder, and red pepper, if desired, in medium saucepan; stir in 1/4 cup green chile mixture. Bring to a boil; reduce heat to medium. Simmer, uncovered, 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.

3 – Ladle soup into four serving bowls; top each serving with small dollops of remaining green chile mixture and additional sour cream, if desired. Run tip of spoon through dollops to swirl.

7 – Transfer the soup to a blender in batches and mix until smooth. Return soup to medium high heat and bring to a gentle boil.
