This is a hearty and GREAT tasting chili!! Got this recipe from Healthy Cooking Magazine!

Ingredients:

  • 3 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 2 cups (1/2-inch) cubed peeled butternut squash (buy it in store like this!)
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
  • 2 cups chopped yellow onion
  • 1 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 2 tablespoons minced jalapeño pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 3 cups unsalted chicken stock
  • 2 (14.5-ounce) cans unsalted cannellini beans, rinsed, drained, and divided
  • 3 cups shredded skinless, boneless rotisserie chicken breast
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped cilantro leaves (I left these out b/c we don’t like it)
  • 1 teaspoon grated lime juice

Directions:

1. Heat a large pot oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil to pan; swirl to coat. Add squash; sauté 8 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides.

2. Add remaining 1 tablespoon oil to pan. Add 5 teaspoons garlic, onion, and next 7 ingredients (through red pepper) to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add stock; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes.

3. Place 1 cup beans in a small bowl; mash with a potato masher or a fork. Add mashed beans, remaining 1 cup beans, and reserved squash to pan. Cook 3 minutes. Stir in chicken; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.

4. Combine remaining 1 teaspoon garlic, cilantro, and lime rind in a small bowl. Top each serving with about 1 teaspoon cilantro mixture.
