Made this the other night and loved it. Husband was set to order pizza after dinner....till he ATE dinner. I roasted the butternut squash before adding it to onions and farlic which added flavor and cut down on cooking time. I added a full bunch of swiss chard which was almost double the recipe, but it was great.Also, used chicken broth. But really, this was hearty and deliciously flavorful!!! A keeper for sure!

This is delicious. I followed the recipe exactly, also using double the amount of chard. I served it over rice. I'll definitely make this again. Thanks, Marissa.

Excellent! I loved the cinnamon with the squash...gave it a mildly sweet flavor and that mixed with the spice of the chili powder...YUM! I accidentally only bought 2 cans of black beans so I improvised and threw in a can of white chili beans that I had on hand. I also threw in twice as much chard and used chicken broth instead of veggie broth. So glad to find this!

This smelled delicious and tasted even better. The only change I made was to add some chicken sausage since my DH won't eat veggie chili. But the beans and squash went so well with the spices, that I don't think the meat was necessary. Soooo good (and it freezes well, too!)

This was delicious! We're not normally "vegetarian" eaters, but this was great. Added shredded cheese and a dollop of sour cream in the bowl. I didn't add the cinnamon, but may try that next time. (Second time, we added avocado and some goat cheese on top!)

Delicious! Did half black beans, half lentils and substituted a package of frozen spinach for the swiss chard. This is a perfect combination of spices, makes the entire house smell amazing. Will make this again!

YUM! Delicious recipe. We loved the flavour - even lacking the cinnamon (by mistake). I also used crushed tomatoes by mistake, so put in less than called for. But it was very very good anyhow! This is a delicious dish we will eat again on another cold winter day.

This was awesome! And flexible. I had a large winter squash of unknown variety (something crossed with a pumpkin?) which I used in place of butternut, and the geese ate the rest of my Swiss chard so we substituted spinach. Also love mixing up the beans: black beans and red and white kidney beans. So pretty. The spice combo is fantastic, even the hint of cinnamon. I did add a tsp of chipotle season and splashed in some red wine when I mixed in the greens. Added two tbs of brown sugar and it was perfect. My family loved it served with shredded cheddar, light sour cream and fresh cilantro. No one missed the meat. Thanks for a delicious and nutritious new chili!

Very yummy. I only added 1 can of beans and extra broth for more of a soup and it was great.
