Acorn Squash and Corn Stew with Chipotle Nutrition Facts
There’s a lot of rich, smoky flavors here for such a simple recipe. To prepare the acorn squash, cut them in half, remove the seeds and add 1 teaspoon bacon grease or butter to each half and bake the squash at 350 degrees for 1 1/4 hours.

1 tablespoon peanut oil
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tablespoon minced onion
4 cups tomato sauce
1/4 cup Melinda’s Chipotle Hot Sauce
1 tablespoon salt
2 cups corn kernels cut from cobs
3 cups baked, soft acorn squash (about 2 medium squashes)
1/2 cup terriyaki sauce
3 cups water
3 cups chicken stock
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup freshly squeezed orange juice
1 tablespoon sugar
1 tablespoon raw honey
1 1/2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
Garlic croutons for garnish

Heat the oil in a pot and add the onion and garlic. Saute until the onion is soft, about 5 minutes, then add the tomato sauce, chipotle hot sauce, salt, and corn kernels and cook, uncovered, over medium heat for 15 minutes.

Add the squash, terriyaki sauce, water, chicken stock, cinnamon, bay leaf, and vanilla and cook, uncovered, for 20 minutes.

Combine the orange juice, sugar, honey, and lime juice in a bowl and add it to the stew. Heat for 5 minutes.

Serve sprinkled with garlic croutons.

Guacamole with Chipotle Nutrition Facts

1 small white onion, minced

1 tablespoon Melinda’s® Chipotle Sauce (or more to taste)
1/2 cup prepared mayonnaise
1/2 cup sour cream
1/4 teaspoon dried cilantro flakes

Combine all the ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Southwest Cream of Corn Soup with Chipotle Nutrition Facts
This well-received classic is dramatically enhanced by floating large garlic croutons and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese on top. It’s great with any traditional Mexican or Southwestern fare, such as enchiladas or chiles rellenos.
1 1/2 quarts water
2 tablespoons salt
6 ears fresh sweet corn, kernels cut off
1/4 cup Melinda’s Chipotle Hot Sauce
1 large bell pepper, seeds removed, chopped fine
1 large red bell pepper, seeded and chopped fine
1 medium red onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup dry red wine
3 ripe tomatoes, peeled, seeded, and chopped fine
1/2 bunch scallions, top 2 inches of greens removed, cut into 1/4-inch pieces
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic
1 tablespoon minced parsley
2 tablespoons New Mexican red chile powder (Chimayó preferred)
1 medium red onion, chopped fine
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
1/4 cup dry red wine
1 1/2 tablespoons sugar
1/2 cup shredded carrots
5 cups white sauce (see Joy of Cooking for recipe)
Chopped cilantro for garnish

In a stock pot, combine the water, salt, corn, hot sauce, bell pepper, onion, vinegar, wine, tomatoes, scallions, garlic, parsley, and chile powder and bring to a boil. Boil uncovered for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.

In a bowl, combine the red onion, wine vinegar, and red wine and let stand for 20 minutes.
In another bowl, combine the sugar, carrots, and white sauce. When the onions are finished marinating, remove them and 2 tablespoons of marinade and add them to the white sauce.

Add the white sauce/onion mixture to the simmering stock pot and blending with a whisk, cook for 5 minutes. Serve immediately or hold warm in a double boiler. Serve garnished with the cilantro.
