Sautee the sausage on medium heat for a few minutes until it starts to release its juices and fat, then add onions. Saute until both are starting to get some color and aroma.
Add the ground chicken/turkey, and all your spices. Cook until the meat is no longer pink, about 5 minutes, breaking it apart with a spatula.
Add chopped greens and butternut squash. Mix it in. Cover and simmer for about 5 minutes.
Add chicken stock and water. Bring to boil and simmer under cover for 20-30 minutes.
Add beans for the last 15 minutes of cooking.
