Chili with Butternut Squash

09 Oct

chili-pepper

This dish is super easy. Really the only thing you need to cook is the meat and the onions and then throw all the rest of the stuff in to simmer for a while. Super good! It’s nice to stock up on all the canned goods and every so often when you don’t know what to have for dinner- just throw this together and it is yum yum! ALso, add a can of kidney beans to the dish too if you want some extra bean protein. Makes it heartier too!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 lb ground beef
  • 1/2 lb sausage (squeeze out of casing)
  • 1 small white onion
  • 4/5 chopped garlic cloves
  • 1 can of stewed tomatoes
  • 3 tsp tomato paste
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup coffee
  • 1 small can sliced olives
  • 1 small can green chilis
  • 1 package butternut squash (from trader joes)
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 2 tsp red chili flakes

In a saucepan combine the meat, onions, and spices until the onions become transparent. While that is cooking, put your butternut squash in the microwave for about 5 minutes. After that, add everything else to the pot and that’s it! Let boil, then let simmer for about 20 minutes and you are done! How easy is that! Top with some avocado or if you aren’t paleo, some cheese and enjoy.
