Squashed Out

I am going to admit that I am starting to get squashed out. I think everyone in the house is feeling the same way.

I am still persevering though. We had a delicata squash waiting to be used in the pantry and I decided to make something fully out of the pantry. We had some frozen chicken in the freezer, squash and onion in the veggie bin, tomatoes, black beans, broth, and seasoning in the pantry and away we go. Throw it all in a slow cooker and you are done. Wallah!

Squash and Chicken Chili

Onion, chopped
Delicata squash, diced with skin on (Butternut is a good substitute.)
3 chicken breasts
1 can diced tomatoes
1 can black beans, drained and rinsed
2-3 Tbsp your favorite chili seasoning
2 cups chicken broth

1. Combine everything into a slow cooker.
2. Cook 8-10 hours on low or 4-5 on high.
3. Shred chicken with a fork and serve with sour cream and Tabasco for heat.

We also had some tortilla chips on hand for some added crunch. I love it when I can shop for dinner at home!
