FARRO STUFFED ACORN SQUASH

i usually only have acorn squash around thanksgiving, but i saw it in the store this weekend and remembered i had some farro at home i had been meaning to try. i’ve always used my mom’s recipe for a cranberry-orange stuffing, but i’ve been doing a lot of orange lately and opted for something savory instead.

BLACK BEAN ACORN SQUASH DIP

i was making tacos once and happened to have a hunk of squash about to go bad and a single purple cayenne pepper. i had no idea what to do with them, so i added them to the black beans. again today i found myself with a half an acorn squash and too many jalapenos. in my defense, this was not supposed to be a dip. i meant to make soup, but i started with dried beans and i guess they soaked up some of the water during the cooking process and something much thicker than soup happened.
