Winter Squash Chipotle Stew

winter stew

Mexican, Caribbean, South American style stew. By adding broth you could make this a soup.

When I first published this article, I made the beans optional. Of course they still are. But recent evidence says that our paleolithic ancestors did eat legumes. Beans are still forbidden in strict Paleo, but other authorities such as Stephan Guyenet think they are fine.


Quanities are approximate. Use however much you want.


  1. Steam or microwave squash until slightly tender.
  2. In something like a dutch oven, lightly fry onions and meat in fat.
  3. Add squash and remaining ingredients, and broth if you want soup, and cook for a while. Maybe 30 minutes.
  4. Adjust seasonings.
