Butternut Squash Black Bean Chili

This vegetarian chili calls for hearty butternut squash and black beans, which means it’s high in fiber. One serving provides more than half of your fiber quota for the day and has 15 grams of plant-based protein.


  • 2 cups butternut squash, diced
  • 2 15-ounce cans black beans, drained
  • 1 red onion, diced
  • 1 15-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • 1 15-ounce can crushed tomatoes
  • 2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons smoked paprika


Place all ingredients in a large stockpot and simmer until butternut squash is tender and the flavors have melded about 30–40 minutes.
