      I've made this once and LOVED it! But I'm wondering if I could substitute sweet potatoes for the squash? Hm...I would think it would work. I'll try it and let you all know!

      Has wonderful flavor. Great for a winter meal. I didn't have chicken so I left it out. Added 8oz of sliced mushrooms and about 4 more cups of squash - I had 2 winter squashes that I needed to cook. I couldn't find the light coconut milk so I used regular - loved the flavor it added. We ate it without the rice. Could be pureed for soup. Overall an excellent recipe.

      This was very very good. I thought the flavors would be overly powerful, but it was very light. I did not use the jalapenos, so it wasn't very spicy. I used a pie pumpkin, and it softened quite a bit faster than 30 minutes, and it mushed a little, but we liked that. Thanks for posting this recipe, it is very different and interesting, and I'm so glad I tried it!
