Ingredients
1 can (4 ounces) diced mild green chiles
1/4 cup light sour cream, plus additional for garnish
1/4 cup packed fresh cilantro leaves

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper (optional)

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.
