Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chili

Betsy Haley

Betsy of Betsy Life is giving us a new spin on classic chili with her Black Bean and Butternut Squash Chili recipe.

To make this Butternut squash chili, Betsy starts with onion and garlic and then sneaks in some heat with jalapenos. The squash is slow cooked with seasoning, a perfect dish to have sitting on your stove over the weekend. We love that Betsy tops her chili with crispy chicken, not only is it a tasty chili topping we love this creative idea for using leftovers.
