Autumn Seafood Chili

Autumn Seafood Chili

A Mexican-inspired chili with a seafood twist. This unusual combination of southwestern spices with seafood and butternut squash is as unique as it is delicious. You can expand on the unusual by substituting anasazi, adzuki or cranberry beans for the pinto beans. Use your choice of canned or cooked dry beans.
