Helpful note: Butternut squash doesn't have to be peeled at all - once cooked, the skin is completely edible!

Thank you for having vegan recipes. My daughter and I love to cook. We try to change recipes to meet our needs. I made it without the oil to reduce the fat contents. THANK YOU

I loved this but found it a little too spicy with 2 1/2 peppers. This made a TON of chili - I froze a whole quart and still have leftovers from dinner. It's very good, although I can't taste the squash as much as I'd like so next time I may add more. I also used 2 cans of beans and served it over quinoa for more protein.

Made this last night for dinner and it was DELICIOUS! I added some venison for some extra protein and loaded up on the squash. I actually added a third pepper too! Spicy and tasty! :)
