Vegetarian Recipe: Pumpkin Chili — Recipes from The Kitchn | The Kitchn

This recipe happened because my favorite cooking reference, Google, totally failed me. It was Halloween and I was inspired. Pumpkin chili was on the menu. One of our children was a vegetarian and it seemed like a wonderful, hearty solution. But I had no recipe and Google was no help. I even looked through actual cookbooks. Every version I found contained meat, pumpkin purée, or both. My vision was a meat-free dish with chunks of pumpkin. Goshdarnit, the pumpkin chili was happening, recipe or not. I decided to wing it.

Green Chile Squash Enchiladas

Green Chile Squash Enchiladas.

Its green chile season here in southern colorado/northern new mexico!  There is something so rich and nostalgic about watching chiles being fresh roasted on the street corners.  I bought a 20 lbs sack and spent hours husking them and cleaning them and freezing them to last through the year.  So, here comes the onslaught of green chile recipes!

How to Bake Butternut Squash

How to Bake Butternut Squash.

I love squashes.  Theres always some new strange one to try, and they are cheap right now and in season.  They are simple and easy to make. Healthy, low in calories, and delicious.  And filling!  I say leave off the brown sugar and butter.  Add some spices at the end, curry powder is good, as is cinnamon and nutmeg, or just salt and pepper.

This can easily become a full meal on its own for 1-2 people, or be a side dish for several more.

Make sure to save your seeds – you can roast them like pumpkin seeds for a yummy snack, or you can save them to plant your own next year!
