Butternut Squash Chili
Hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving weekend! It always comes and goes way too quickly.
Despite knowing better, I always let the boys stay up way too late during the holiday breaks (movies, popcorn, or games, anyone?!)
We totally pay for it Monday morning. That’s where this Butternut Squash Chili swoops in to save the day…or maybe the week.
Perfect chili for chilly days
Speaking of Mondays, Miss Snowstorm has decided to waltz in on the first day back to business. Snow blowers are out there in full force. Snow plows are doing their darndest to keep up.
I did my annual mad scramble for all the kids’ snow gear that has been long forgotten in The Closet Abyss. I literally looked crazy, knee deep all the outgrown boots and beanie hats with their puff balls falling off.
But here’s my happy in the blizzard: Butternut Squash Chili.
It’s sooooo chili time.
Why this is the best chili ever
This is not just any chili. This holiday inspired chili is hearty, healthy, and teeming with turkey and squash. Delicious (and easy) satisfaction in a bowl.
The use of fall squash rewards us with such vibrant colors, texture, and flavor. Not to mention it’s loaded with nutrients our bodies crave.
This chili recipe has it all: ease, simplicity, healthful ingredients, and most importantly – big flavors. There’s nothing bland or boring about this pot of chili.
My big extended family, who will forever remain in So. Cal., faithfully torments me with announcements of their 80-degree Decembers.
But there’s something kind of magical about the seasons in the Midwest. Here’s to snow boots that fit and beanie hats with puff balls sewn back on.
And to sitting down to steaming hot bowl of chili with your favorite people.

For the love of chili:
- Lentil Black Bean Chili. Super hearty and delicious, with or without the meat.
- Slow Cooker Chili with Black Beans and Corn. Slow cookers are boss at making chili.
3. Turkey or Beef Chili with Sriracha. This chili recipe uses the ease of a slow cooker and the kick of Sriracha.
- White Chicken Chili. Throw it all in the slow cooker, without pre-cooking the chicken. This is the easiest and tastiest white chicken chili we’ve ever tasted (and we’ve tasted a whole lotta chili.)
