zuni-stew recipe

 In the spirit of all the squash and soup recipes, I thought I'd post one of my
 favorite soup recipes, Zuni Stew.  This may sound a little weird, but the taste
 and different textures make this delicious.  This stew takes its ingrediants
 from the natural bounty of New Mexico, home of the Zuni tribe.
 Zuni Stew
 1 large onion, chopped
 2-3 cloves garlic
 2 large bell peppers (1 red, 1 green is nice and colorful)
 1 large Anahiem chili
 1 jalepeno chili
 5 cups broth
 1 zuchinni, sliced thin
 1 yellow crook-neck squash, sliced thin
 1 to 2 cups winter squash, cubed
 1 can corn (no-salt, or drain and rinse)
 1 can pinto beans (no-salt, or drain and rinse)
 Saute the first 5 ingredients in a large pot for 15-20 minutes, or until all
 peppers and chilis are soft.  Saute in a little broth to keep from sticking.
 Do not short change this step!  Sauteing the chilis makes them release their
 volitile oils (do I sould like Graham Kerr? ;).  This makes the both nice
 and spicy.  It also keeps you from burning the #@%*&! out of your mouth when
 you eat a spoonful of the chilis.  
 Add the broth and the winter squash.  Cover and cook 5-10 minutes, until squash
 starts to get tender.  Add zuchinni and crook-neck.  Simmer 5.  Add corn and
 beans and heat through.  
 This stew is nice to look at (red, yellow, green, brown) and it reheats well.
