Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until shimmering. Add the pancetta and cook, stirring frequently, until crisp and rendered, 4 to 5 minutes. Remove the pancetta and set aside.

Step 2

Return pan to medium heat. Add the remaining oil and then add the shallots, serrano peppers, and a pinch of salt and pepper, and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, but not browned, about 3 minutes. Add the cumin and garlic and cook, stirring constantly, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the squash and cook, stirring frequently, until it begins to soften slightly, about 5 minutes. Add the couscous and broth and simmer, stirring occasionally, until most of the liquid is absorbed and squash is tender, about 12 minutes.

Step 3

Add the chickpeas and pancetta to the pan to warm through, season to taste with salt and pepper and toss with lemon juice. Let sit for a few minutes to allow cous cous to finish hydrating, stir in cilantro, and serve.
