Ingredients

  • 8 cups fresh Roma tomatoes (roughly cut)
  • 4 cups butternut squash (cubed)
  • 1 1/2 pounds chorizo sausage (fresh not cured)
  • 1 poblano pepper (seeded and diced)
  • 1 onion (diced)
  • 3 cloves garlic (minced)
  • 19 ounces white kidney beans (drained and rinsed)
  • 1 1/2 tsp jalapeno flavoured olive oil
  • 1 tbsp olive oil (for roasting tomatoes)
  • 1 tsp cumin (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp chipotle chili powder (or to taste)
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/4 tsp pepper
  • lime and cilantro (for garnish)

Instructions

For the Roasted Tomatoes:

  • Preheat oven to 400º F. Wash and 1/4 cut tomatoes. Place in a large baking dish. Coat with oil, and season with salt and pepper.
  • Roast for approximately 50 minutes, turning every so often. When they are done, let cool slightly and blitz in blender to break them up.

While tomatoes are roasting:

  • In a heavy bottomed pot, heat the olive oil. Add the diced onion and garlic. Cook for about 10 minutes. While this is cooking cut up the sausage.
  • Add the sausage to the onion/garlic mixture. Cook for 20 minutes. Drain any excess fat from the pot.
  • Add the diced squash and jalapeno oil. Cook for 15 minutes.
  • Add the roasted/blitzed tomatoes and beans. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Reduce heat to medium/low, cover and simmer for 30 minutes.
  • Ladle into bowls. Garnish with a squeeze of lime and cilantro.
  • ENJOY!

Notes

This makes a nice BIG batch, so don't be scared to tuck some away in the freezer for another great meal down the road.
If you like things spicer, adding more chili powder will increase the heat level too.
