  • 1 tbsp (15 mL) vegetable oil
  • 2 medium green bell peppers, cut into 1-inch (2.5 cm) pieces
  • 2 cups (500 mL) cubed, peeled, cooked butternut squash
  • 2 cups (500 mL) shredded cooked turkey or chicken

  1. Heat oil in Dutch oven over medium heat; add bell peppers. Cook 6 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until peppers are almost crisp-tender. Stir in remaining ingredients.

Expert Tips

  • Cut-up, ready-to-cook squash can be found in the produce section of many grocery stores and club stores during the fall and winter.
  • Are you using leftover cooked squash that's already mashed? Simply stir it in with other ingredients for a thicker soup.
