I used my crock pot, but you can easily do this on the stove.
1 butternut squash peeled and chopped into inch squares (mine are never perfect i just chop into the size that looks good to me)
1-2 red pepper chopped (could use green)
1 onion chopped
1-2 cans black beans (I used dried soaked and cooked in mine, but caned is good...just rinse well)
1-2 chipotle peppers in abodo (these are spicy with a smokey flavor, but you can omit them and use chili powder or whatever you like)
1-2 crushed garlic cloves
a bit of fresh grated ginger (I add it to everything, but you can omit)
I just added an assortment of spices that smelled good/I like. You can do whatever ones you like.
Cumin, Turmeric, Cayenne Pepper (sprinkle and taste)
1 can diced tomatoes (fire roasted would be good)
vegetable broth (you could use chicken, beef, or water)
I put a bit of coconut oil as I was not using any meat and I like the good fat properties in this oil
This is before it cooked
Then I stirred it all up and left it to cook on high for 4 hours checking as needed.
It was so good. Like I say, make it your own. It would be good topped with sour cream (or nonfat greek yogurt as we do at our house, we like the sourness better). Or cheese (or goat cheese like we do). I made this by looking in my pantry and fridge and wondering what can I make and just added the amount that looked good to me.
I made a big crock pot full and now I have lunch in the freezer for the next few weeks. My kids won't eat this because I made it extra spicy for me (spicy food makes me feel full and satisfied longer).
*zucchini, yellow neck squash, mushrooms, any other type of bean, chicken, beef, sausage, turkey, buffalo, a bit of honey, really anything that sounds good to you.
*If I had cilantro I would have added that.
