I was really excited to try this recipe, and have to say it was a let down. I used fresh tomatoes, canned pintos, and only 1 tsp of chili powder (based on other reviews). I also baked the squash for 20 minutes prior to adding it to the stew. While I appreciated the smell of the cinnamon and cumin sauteed with the onion and garlic, the final flavors did not come through. It has almost a sour taste, and is a little bland. I served it over rice with grilled tortillas, and added some Sriracha hot sauce (which makes everything better), but it's just not that great. I think I might try it with potatoes next time (the squash was stringy), and maybe add more salt to counteract that sour undertone. I will also use canned tomatoes, as I feel all that work to peel, seed, and dice was not really worth it.
