This is WAY good. Even as a non-chili lover I am a huge fan. My kids loved it, my friends loved it and can be made in the crock pot. All around a win.
SIDE NOTE – also a great dish when you are trying to stretch the budget but still feel like you are eating WELL!
4 tsp. olive oil
1 butternut squash, roasted and cut into cubes
3 carrots, peeled and cut into pieces
1 large onion, chopped
1 Tbs. chili powder
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 – 28oz can of diced tomatoes
1 Tbs. sugar
1/2 tsp. salt
1 can red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 box of chicken broth
1/4 cup cilantro (optional)
Heat oil in a sauce pan and cook carrots, onions, garlic and chili powder until tender. Add these ingredients and all the rest to a large crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. or high for 4-6 hours. Smash some of the butternut squash cubes to make the chili thicker if desired. Garnish with cilantro.
If you are doing the 21 Day Fix this would count for 1 green, 1 yellow and 0.5 purple.
