Delicious, easy chili made with only five ingredients - acorn squash, chicken sausage, salsa, kidney beans, and topped with goat cheese.
Medium - large acorn squash
cut in half, seeds removed
of ground chicken sausage - I like Italian
jar of salsa - I like black bean and corn but any salsa works
can of kidney beans
rinsed - red or the white cannellini beans work
as a topping, could also use sour cream or cheddar cheese
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place acorn squash cut side down on a baking sheet. Bake for approximately 30 minutes, until soft and cooked through. Remove from oven when done and let cool.
While acorn squash bakes, brown sausage in a stock pot or Dutch oven.
When sausage is thoroughly cooked, add in salsa and beans.
Remove cooked acorn squash from the skin. Easy to scrape it off with a fork or spoon. Add acorn squash to dutch oven with sausage, kidney beans, and salsa. Then add a cup of water to the chili.
Let simmer for 5-10 minutes.
Serve with crumbled goat cheese.
