Full of flavor and you can make it as spicy as you like! This is a vegetarian meal in itself, and adorned with tortilla chips, sour cream and cheese, you will go crazee for more! Freezes well too. Enjoy!

Delicious! I looked for butternut squash, fresh or frozen, but could only locate a really tiny one. So I used that and added acorn squash. I halved the recipe, and it turned out great. I let it cook in the crock pot for 3 hours. Made for PRMR tag! Thanks for sharing!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. If you are using a fresh butternut squash, to make peeling much easier, cook in boiling water 4 minutes. Now it will be easy to cut and peel. The seeds are good toasted too!
  2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet. Add in leeks, celery, carrots and garlic. Cook and stir for about 5-7 minutes on medium high heat, until vegetables start to soften.
  3. Place leek mixture in crock pot. Stir in chipotle peppers, if using, basil, parsley, and cumin. Now mix in tomatoes, broth, beans, and corn.
  4. Place lid on crock pot.
  5. Cook on high for 2-4 hours, until squash is fork tender.
  6. To serve, ladle stew into bowls. Squeeze lime juice over each bowl.
  7. Top with tortilla chips(I crush with my hand), and a dollop of sour cream. Sprinkle cheese and a little parsley over the top, and dig in! Enjoy!
