Recipe

A simple vegetarian Butternut Squash Chili that is ready in 30 minutes making it the perfect weeknight meal.

One of our favorite restaurants make these killer vegetarian nachos that are covered in a butternut squash chili and mountains of cheese and jalapenos. My friend and I go once a couple of months to indulge in girl talk, vino, and these infamous nachos. Last week I was really craving them but wanted something healthier at home. So I made this simple stove top butternut squash chili and baked up some tortilla chips. It was the perfect replacement and although I missed out on the girl time, my craving was completely satisfied. And let's be honest, I definitely added some cheese as well. Hearty vegetarian weeknight chili that will quickly become a favorite.
