Apple Cinnamon Butternut Squash Soup

A couple of weeks ago I made the most potent butternut soup ever.  I mean it was a mouth raping, burn central hotter than hell soup.  I’ve made this soup numerous of times with great success, that little bit of burn was always just right, but for some reason the little jalapeño I used was forged in mount doom.  Ever since that day, I’ve vowed to make the best butternut soup I will ever eat and I did it!

This is a great recipe for kids or for adults that have been scorned by butternut soup before.  Naturally sweet and really easy to make this is a recipe for everyone.
