Um. whilst I contemplate my daily life choices, you ought to ponder making this spicy ground beef and Butternut Squash dish. It’s an clean-to-make weeknight dish that’s best for this season. It’s form of like a “dry chili” or a “dry curry” – in case you understand what I suggest. in case you don’t know what I mean, then make this and you’ll understand. Promise.

I truly love the flavor and heat that freshly ground black pepper adds to a dish, however in case you’re now not partial to highly spiced food, then just halve the amount of black pepper that the recipe requires. you can additionally miss the Serrano pepper, or simply put off the rib when mincing it. Or simply send your Serrano peppers to me. we love them right here – I always have not less than five Serrano peppers in my fridge. when i am getting low, it’s time to move to the shop.
