Butternut Squash Chili – Gluten Free

butternut squash chili - crock pot

This butternut squash chili recipe is easy and delicious. And, it can be made in a crock pot.

Butternut squash chili. It’s easy. It’s gluten-free. And, you can make it in a slow cooker. Plus it’s healthy.

As a delayed start to my new year, new me personal campaign, and a delayed start to losing the baby weight, I’m starting a 10-day cleanse that’s safe for breastfeeding mamas when you remove the evening tablets. So I did what any naturally minded mama would do, I hit Costco. And, loaded up on all kinds of delicious goodness, including butternut squash.

Today, I tossed this butternut squash chili in the slow cooker for a delicious, cleanse-friendly, gluten-free, healthy meal. YES, it would be great with bacon, or burger meat. BUT, as is, it’s a great vegetarian option, even without the bacon. I serve over quinoa, but brown rice would be tasty too.
