Smoky Seitan, Pinto Bean, and Hominy Stew

Brown serves this satisfying vegetarian stew in roasted, seeded acorn squash halves. This dish provides nearly a day's allowance of protein, most of it from seitan, also known as wheat gluten. Chipotle chile powder lends wonderful smoky flavor. Hominy is a traditional Native American ingredient.
