New World Chili

"New World Chili" (page 250) is named for the ingredients that explorers coming to the shores of America may have discovered growing here, such as butternut squash, pinto and lima beans, and corn.  An interesting blend of spices (allspice, chili powder, canned chipotle chili), along with mild salsa infuse this chili with bold and appealing flavors. This may not seem like a traditional chili, maybe more like bean stew or chowder, but delicious in it's own right. This is a wonderful dish for this time of year, hearty and warming, and leftovers keep very well. The only change I made to keep this within my preparation guidelines was to omit the oil when sautéing the onion.
