When the weather turns cold, we find ourselves craving big bowls of chili to consume under a blanket on the couch. This unbeatable combination of butternut squash and ground beef definitely fits the bill, featuring black beans, chipotle, tomatoes, and a Mexican-inspired spice blend. As an added bonus, there’s creamy queso fresco and plenty of homemade tortilla chips for scooping up every last drop.
