Pumpkin Soup from Janet/Alice

Here is a pumpkin Soup dish that a friend made as part of a "Napa wine tasting" nite. I wanted to share it with you since so many Pumpkin soup dishes start with- buy a large pumpkin and roast it... what a mess! This one came from my friend janet via her fried Alice. Enjoy!

6 cups Chicken Broth
2 cups Heavy cream
1 can Pure Pumpkin ( 29 or 30oz can)
6 Table spoons of Dark brown sugar
1 Teaspoon cumin
1 Teaspoon Chili powder
1 Teaspoon ground coriander
1/8 Teaspoon nutmeg

Bring Chicken and cream to a boil.
Wisk in remaining of ingredients in order.
Reduce heat and simmer till it thickens ( about 20 minutes).
Salt and pepper to taste ( I didn't use any).
Cheddar cheese and Cilantro for presentation
