Butternut squash chili


4 cups fresh spinach

3 cups butternut squash

2 cups chopped zucchini

1 cup chopped white mushrooms

2 12-ounce cans diced tomatoes

1 15-ounce can sweet yellow corn

1 15-ounce can cannellini beans (drained)

1.5 pounds lean ground beef (browned)

1 medium white onion

2 tbsp Simply Organic vegetarian chili mix

2 tbsp fresh coffee grounds

2 tbsp A1 steak sauce

2 tbsp low sodium soy sauce


In a medium skillet, saute chopped onion until translucent. Brown ground beef with onions until cooked thoroughly. Chop remaining vegetables into bite-sized pieces and add to large stockpot. Pour in diced tomato with juices, chili seasoning mix, coffee grounds, steak sauce and soy sauce. Add cooked meat and mix well. Bring mixture to a low boil then reduce heat to simmer, covered, on medium until vegetables are cooked through. Chili can be served as-is.
