This is very good. I put the recipe together to use vegetables from my garden, winter squash and purple hull peas. I used Lakota Squash but any winter squash will work. I used purple hulled peas but black eyed peas taste the same. It is an easy chili that's sure to please. It's a great base with lots of options to spice it up depending on who is going to be eating it. I put everything together in the morning and let it simmer all day; cooking time can be adjusted to fit your needs.
