This butternut squash chili is loaded with sweet-tart apples, warming spices, hearty chickpeas and black beans. Easy to make, super flavorful, and guaranteed to warm you up!
Coat the bottom of a large pot with the olive oil and place it over medium heat.
Give the oil a minute to heat up, then add the onion. Cook the onion for about 5 minutes, stirring frequently, until it's soft and translucent.
Stir in the garlic and spices (chili powder through cloves). Cook the mixture while stirring for about 1 minute, until it becomes very fragrant.
Stir in the broth, chickpeas, black beans, crushed and diced tomatoes, butternut squash and apple. Raise the heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
Lower the heat and simmer the chili until thickened and the squash is tender, about 40 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Remove the pot from heat and season the chili with salt and pepper to taste.
Ladle into bowls and serve.
