Yee-haw! Too forced? We aren't claiming to be from Texas, but we think this chili is pretty darn tasty without the bells, whistles, and yee-haws. Butternut squash and turkey flavored with chili powder are mixed with tomatoes, then simmered. Served with classic chili fixin's, you might have the urge, after you eat your bowl clean, to let loose a classic Texan yelp, no matter what state you live in.
