I found this recipe in my most recent issue of Better Homes and Gardens. I had quite the stack of magazines to read through when I spotted this one. Why do all magazines seem to come around the same time of the month?? In all honesty, some recipes in Better Homes and Gardens are hit or miss. I’ve tried some doozies! I made a casserole with hotdogs in it. I should have known but I thought my husband would like it because of the hotdogs. I don’t think we ate any of the leftovers from that casserole. So, you can understand why I was a little leary of this recipe.
I read the ingredients and they all sounded great. I really was surprised by the flavor in the chili because of the lack of spices and the fact that there are only 5 ingredients too. When I was reading the recipe the ingredient that sold me was the winter squash. I love squash! The chili came together quite quickly and would be great for a work night when you don’t want to spend a lot of time cooking after dinner.
