Recipe: Squash and Black Bean Chili

A quick filling chili that gets the job done. This is even more delicious with a nice heaping of sour cream and hot sauce or some crunchy tortilla chips / pieces to jazz it up. It packs good flavor on its own and has a bunch of textures but it just needs a little something to make it pop.
