Recipe Ingredients for Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili

2 pounds pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled and seeded
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
14 1/2 ounce diced tomatoes
14 1/2 ounce crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 cup apple juice
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups black beans

Recipe Directions for Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili

  1. Cut the pumpkin into 1/2-inch chunks and set aside.

  2. Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeņo. Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the reserved pumpkin, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, water, apple juice, chili powder, salt, and cayenne, and stir well. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the pumpkin is tender, about 30 minutes.
