As usual, nothing here is set in stone. A variety of veggies is fun, but it works just as well with all the same squash, canned tomatoes, canned kidney or black beans….also, if you have fresh veggies – use them and make your own adjustments! Of course, fresh hot peppers are a great addition too.
Heat oil in 4+ qt pot and sauté onion, garlic, and chili powder for 5 minutes. Add peppers and sauté another 5 minutes. Add squash and other spices; sauté 5 minutes. Add tomatoes, corn, and beans if fresh; cook 10 minutes. Stir in salt and canned beans if using; cook 5 minutes or until everything is the texture you’re looking for.
