Stir in squash; cover and simmer 5 to 6 minutes or until vegetables are tender, stirring once.
Whisk together peanut flour and remaining 1/2 cup broth. Stir into stew; simmer uncovered 5 minutes or until stew has thickened. Stir in beans; heat through. Ladle into four shallow bowls. Top with peanuts and, if desired, cilantro. Serve with lime wedges. Makes 4 servings.
