Hyvee Culinary Expert TipChile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes. When working with hot peppers, wear protective gloves.
Stir in chili powder, cumin, salt and black pepper, and 1 minute.
Add tomatoes and beans. Bring chili to a boil, reduce heat to medium and simmer about 5 minutes.
Stir in squash. Partially cover chili and simmer, stirring occasionally, until squash is tender and chili thickens slightly, about 10 minutes. Add up to 1/2 cup water if chili becomes too thick.
To serve, spoon chili into bowls and top with avocado, cilantro, and sour cream, if desired.
