    Butternut Squash Crock Pot Chili

    Ingredients:

    • 1 medium red onion, diced
    • 1 medium green pepper, diced
    • 4 cups cubed (¾ inch) butternut squash (I bought Trader Joes pre-cut and its a huge timesaver!)
    • 2 (14 oz) cans diced fire-roasted tomatoes
    • 1 (15 oz) can black beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 (15 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
    • 1 (15 oz) can cannelini beans
    • 3 cups low-sodium vegetable broth (I use sodium free)
    • 1 cup uncooked quinoa, rinsed and drained
    • 1 to 3 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce (use less if you prefer less heat)
    • 1 ½ tablespoons chili powder
    • 2 teaspoons cumin
    • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
    • ¼ teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • salt & pepper to taste
    • optional toppings: shredded cheese, avocado, plain yogurt, tortilla chips, cilantro

    Directions:

    Place all ingredients in slow cooker (except for toppings of course), give a good stir and set for 8 hour on low. Give another good stir and spoon into bowls, top with cheese, avocado, tortillas and enJOY!
