A note about serious food allergies

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 and a hint of honey, 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.
