A mild chili featuring the famous Three Sisters of Native America: maize, beans and squash. In our version, Anson Mills heirloom posole is nixtamalized (cooked with slaked lime to release B Vitamins) and then simmered until tender in a savory and lightly spiced tomato base with white butter beans from Iacopi Farm in Half Moon Bay and Tomatero Farm zucchini. When you eat this stew, celebrate Native American wisdom: planting these three crops together provided benefits to each. The corn provides a structure for the beans to climb, the beans provide nitrogen and other nutrients to both the corn and the squash through the soil, and the squash leaves shade the roots of the corn and the beans.
Ingredients: zucchini, posole, butter beans, onions, crushed tomatoes, olive oil, garlic, Celtic sea salt, apple cider vinegar, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, paprika, smoked paprika, cinnamon, chipotle powder, cloves, bay leaves
