It caught Penny's eye and had her saving the recipe because it sounds a lot like one of our favorite chili dishes from Main Streets Market & Cafe in Concord, MA. We always order a bowl of their chili when we visit that charming town. They call theirs, Main Streets Own Beef Chili, and describe it as lightly sweet with butternut squash and no beans.
One of the reasons Penny loves Leite's Culinaria is because their recipes are tested by cooks like us. You get to read their comments and that gives you ideas to use as you make the recipe. This site also has a great following so you will see comments from readers as well. And, if an answer is needed, the writer comes back to reply.
We think this is a perfect dish for a cool evening on the roof deck with friends. We hope you enjoy trying it too.
