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 chile rub 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. Tip: To remove the core of a tomato, carefully cut a shallow circle around the stem with a small knife, then remove circle.
