1 poblano pepper, stem and seeds removed, and diced*
1 teaspoon chili powder*
½ teaspoon chipotle paste or powder*
1 cup halved cherry tomatoes, or 1 cup canned diced tomatoes
2 teaspoons apple cider vinegar
1 cup cooked black beans, drained and rinsed
2 to 3 cups vegetable broth
juice of ½ to 1 lime
sea salt and freshly ground black pepper
grilled corn kernels
handful of cilantro
baked tortilla strips (or crumbled chips)
dollops of poblano cashew cream
Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook until soft, 5 to 8 minutes. Stir in the garlic, carrots, poblano, butternut squash, and another pinch of salt and pepper. Cook until the vegetables just start to become tender and the onion is lightly browned, about 15 minutes. Reduce the heat if necessary.
Add the chile powder, chipotle powder, and tomatoes and cook for 1 minute. Stir in the apple cider vinegar and black beans and then add 2 cups of vegetable broth (or enough to cover everything). Simmer until the butternut squash and carrots are tender, 20 to 30 minutes, adding more broth, as needed.
Add a big squeeze of lime. Season to taste with more salt, pepper, and spices to your liking. If you’re chili is too spicy, stir in a small splash of apple cider vinegar. If it’s too thick, add another cup of broth.
Serve with grilled corn, cilantro, tortilla strips, lime slices, and poblano cashew cream.
*if you’re sensitive to spice, start with less, you can always add more. If you chili is too spicy in the end, add more lime juice and/or splashes of apple cider vinegar to tone it down.
