My new favorite soup

This soup is easy and out of this world delicious! I highly recommend it.

Spicy Butternut Squash and Chicken Soup
1 small diced onion
2 stalks of celery, diced
2 cups of cubed butternut squash
2 cups chicken stock/broth
1 can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 cup chopped cooked chicken
1/2 tsp ground ginger
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp black pepper
fresh lime juice
bunch of cilantro
Cook onion and celery in a saucepan over medium heat in a drizzle of olive oil for 5 minutes while stirring. Stir in squash, broth, tomatoes, chicken, ginger, salt, cumin, and pepper, and mix well.
Cover, and cook over low heat for 30 minutes or until squash is tender. Stir in the juice of one lime, and serve with fresh cilantro sprinkled on top.
