1 ½ tablespoons olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
8 medium garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons chili powder
1 tablespoon ground coriander
2 – 15 ounce cans fire-roasted tomatoes
1 pound dried black beans, sorted, rinsed
2 chipotle chilies, canned in adobo sauce, minced
2 Teaspoons dried oregano
1 Tablespoon granulated garlic
1 Tablespoon granulated onion
10 Cups water
2 Teaspoons coarse sea salt
1 Medium butternut squash, peeled, seeded, cut into ½ inch cubes
1 cup Morningstar Farms or Boca Vegetable Crumbles
Coarsely grated pepper Jack cheese
Diced onions
Chopped fresh cilantro
Pickled jalapeno slices

Heat oil in heavy large pot over medium heat, add onions and cook until soft and beginning to brown, stirring often, about 5 minutes.
Add garlic, saute 1 minute.
Sprinkle in chili powder and coriander, saute a few seconds.
Stir in tomatoes with juice, beans, chipotles, oregano, granulated garlic and onions.
Add 10 cups water. Bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium low and simmer uncovered 1 hour.
Add 1 Teaspoon salt
Continue cooking until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Total cooking time should take approximately 2 hour.
Add squash, vegetable crumbles and remaining salt to chili. Simmer uncovered over medium-low heat until squash is tender, about 30 minutes.

Serve with any or all of the following: Cheese, onions, cilantro, and pickled jalapeno slices

Note: To make a meat chili, add ½ - 1 pound of ground turkey (sautéed and seasoned with salt and pepper) instead of the vegetable crumbles.
