Is winter weather waving at you from the other side of the window? Time to conjure up hot bowls of chili to sustain yourself against the oncoming cold. Dip your fork deep into a meaty stew, generously spiced with our Latin Accent seasonings (ancho chilies know what to do and when to do it). Ground beef, chopped poblano pepper and chunks of butternut squash make for a full house. Contrast it with rice flecked with lime zest and a crispy salad of radishes and Cotija cheese.

Cook the rice
Zest the lime. In a medium pot, combine the rice, 1 ¼ cups water (double for 4 portions) and a big pinch of salt; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat, cover and simmer, 17 to 20 min., until the rice is tender and the water has been absorbed. Remove from the heat and let sit, covered, for 5 min. Add ½ the lime zest. Fluff the rice.

Start the chili
In a large pan, heat a generous drizzle of oil on medium-high. Sauté the poblano and squash, 2 to 4 min., until beginning to soften; season with ⅓ of the spices and S&P. Add the beef*; season with ½ the remaining spices and S&P. Cook, breaking up the meat, 4 to 6 min., until browned and cooked through.

Finish the chili
To the pan of vegetables and beef, add the tomato sauce, ⅔ cup water (double for 4 portions) and the remaining spices; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer and cook, stirring frequently, scraping up any browned bits from the bottom of the pan, 3 to 5 min., until thickened. Add ½ the lime juice; stir well.
