. Peel and chop the butternut squash, place them on a pot on medium-high heat. Add the water and the milk and bring to boil. Be careful with the milk because is going to boil fast.
. When it starts to boil, add bay leaves, salt, chili powder and cajun powder, mix all well. Cover and simmer on low-medium heat until the butternut squash is cooked.
. Remove the bay leaves and blend the soup using a hand mixer until smooth and creamy. Taste the soup and add seasoning if needed. Cook for 5 more minutes and serve hot with crispy butternut squash chips and some fontina cheese.
