"Very tasty chilli - the variety of colour makes for great plate presentation. I might swap out the chilli powder for nutmeg next time - I think that would better accent the squash. (Though I guess it wouldn't be chilli any more.)"

Great recipe! Used diced tomatoes since I didn't have stewed, and roasted the squash - fantastic!

Great recipe. Could add or change the vegetables and and adjust the seasonings to get a completely different dish. I added a little cayenne to give it just a hint of heat.
