How to Make It

Step 1

Heat oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add onion and bell pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until soft, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, 1 minute. Stir in beans, broth, tomatoes, green chiles, chili powder, chipotle chile powder, and oregano. Simmer, covered, 10 minutes. Uncover and cook 10 more minutes.

Step 2

Cut squash in half lengthwise, scoop out and discard seeds, pierce with a fork a few times, and put in a microwave-safe dish with 1/4 inch water. Cover with plastic wrap; microwave on HIGH 8 minutes or until tender. Let cool; peel with a small sharp knife, and cut into 1/2-inch chunks. Stir squash into bean mixture; cook 5 minutes. Stir in salt. Serve warm.

Step 3

Andrea's wine pick: The chiles, beans, and squash demand the earthy smokiness of a French red Rhone wine. Look for the magnificent 2004 vintage of La Vieille Ferme Côtes du Ventoux ($99).

This sounded like a strange combination of ingredients to me, but it is really tasty and very filling. I think it's even better after being in the fridge for a day. You do need to 'serve warm' as the recipe says. It's not as good piping hot for some reason.
