To Peel or Not to Peel

I’m in the “not peel” camp. You can tell that the peel is there, but it doesn’t bother my family enough to peel it.

Make this Butternut Squash Chili in your Slow Cooker

Set your crockpot on low and let your chili cook for 4-5 hours.

It starts with a base of sautéed onions and garlic, to which diced butternut squash is added, lending a sweet, nutty flavor that pairs beautifully with the bold heat of jalapeños and the smokiness of chipotle in adobo.

Butternut  Squash Chili

The richness is further deepened by a hint of cocoa powder, a classic chili powder blend, earthy cumin.
