Butternut-Beef Chili

Posted on

Another beauty from Cooking Light.  Are you noticing a trend here?

I meant the trend towards healthier fare.  You’re right, though, butternut squash is just popping up everywhere around here.

I found this recipe in Light and Easy Menus.  The easy part is too true.  Just brown the ground beef with some frozen green peppers and onions.

Then you can invite everything else to the party:  stewed tomatoes, cumin, chili powder, kidney beans, garlic, and the beloved butternut squash.  Don’t you just love all the beautiful colors?

Simmer away and you’ve got dinner in a snap.   I doubled this.   Well, for the most part.  I actually neglected to get the second can of beans, and half of the tomatoes are just diced, not stewed.  Really, it didn’t matter one bit.  Besides, that’s the closest I come to improvising or adapting a recipe.

Eat Well and Savor.
