  • 2 cups cubed peeled butternut squash
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium red bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt

  1. Heat a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat. Add 2 tablespoons oil to pan. Add squash; sauté 8 minutes or until lightly browned on all sides. Remove squash from pan; set aside.
  2. Add garlic, onion, and next 7 ingredients to pan; sauté 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender. Add stock; bring to a boil, scraping pan to loosen browned bits. Reduce heat to medium, and simmer, uncovered, 10 minutes.
  3. Place 1 can beans in a bowl; mash with a potato masher or a fork. Add mashed beans, remaining 1 can beans, and reserved squash to pan. Cook 3 minutes. Stir in chicken; cook 2 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
  4. Garnish with cilantro and tortilla strips.
