Butternut Squash Chili - Recipe featured in the Fresno Bee and can be found on Krollskorner.com

Happy Wellness Wednesday!! Even though Fresno is still acting like summer – except this week is actually a lot cooler – I am anxiously getting ready for fall and winter meals! I have pulled out the crock pot and putting it to use. Winter squash is packed with Vitamin A – which is great for keeping a healthy immune system during these colder months that are quickly approaching. Which also reminds me…I need to go get my flu shot!

I like the fact that the butternut squash is cubed…but I also think if it was pureed with an immersion blender and then added into the crock pot, it was give the dish more of a chili texture. If you make this recipe maybe try it out and let me know! 🙂
