Ingredients

Instructions

  • In a Dutch oven over medium-high heat, melt the butter and olive oil together until simmering. Add the red onion and saute until golden brown, about 5 minutes. Next, stir in the minced garlic until it becomes fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  • Add the butternut squash and saute, stirring every 2 minutes until the edges are golden brown and the squash just begins to soften, about 6 to 7 minutes.
  • Move the squash to the side of the Dutch oven and add the chorizo. Using a wooden spoon, break the chorizo into small pieces.
  • Once the chorizo is browned, about 10 minutes, stir in the crushed tomatoes, chipotle pepper, black beans and chicken broth. Lastly, add the lentils, cumin and chili powder.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer and cover. Let cook until the butternut squash and lentils are both soft, about 40 to 45 minutes.
  • Serve warm with cilantro or parsley, and yogurt or sour cream.
