Pumpkin + Sausage + Avocado = Our New Fall Flavorite
The taste of fall. The warmth of Texas.
Thanks to a memorable Texas tasty trio of pumpkin, avocado and smoked sausage, this new fall flavor “flavorite” marries sweet and savory in a most delicious way.
❤ Use your favorite smoked sausage in this soup – we found the more savory sausage, the merrier. We discovered this pecan smoked pepper jack sausage at HEB and we found it the perfect smokey complement to the bowl of orange.
❤ If you don’t have an immersion blender, no worries – you can transfer the soup in batches into a blender and purée away. We have a Cuisinart SmartStick Hand Blender that has brought quite a few years of good dishes.
