This cooks up thick with very little sauce. It was a good consistency for me. I didn't need the rice. Sprinkled some cheese and scallions over top. I loved the flavor that the squash added. This chili is not not very spicy, so if you like spice, you'll have to kick it up a notch.

Good base, but I did make a few changes; halved the oil, doubled the meat and squash, added 1/3 cup of tomatoe sauce, used 1 can Rotel tomatoes in place of plain diced tomatoes, doubled the cumin and chili powder (used about a 1/4 tsp. of chipotle chili powder combined with the regular chili powder). The butternut squash gives the chili a nice sweet and spicy flavor and along with added nutritional benefits.

Very easy and perfect to cook a large pot to eat now and then later! My 19 year old daughter swore that she didn't like squash, but had no idea that she was eating it in this dish! I used jalapeno tomatoes rather than plain and it spiced it up a bit. . might go a little spicier next time.
