Wanted something different to do with squash, this was not the answer. Despite all of the spices, it needs A LOT more. The squash just disappears. We ended up adding more chili powder, red pepper, salt, pepper and garlic to the pot and then more salt at the rable. Was a disappointment for sure.

This recipe is just awful. Despite the chili powder (bought special for the recipe, fresh oregano, etc., it has NO flavor except for the beef broth. Shame on you, Better Homes & Gardens. We expect more.
