Badass Butternut Squash No-Bean Chili. Whole 30 cannot be boring because life needs flavor, plain chicken breast and steamed veggies will not cut it for me. so today i present you with my own no bean, turkey chili full of veggies, low fat ground turkey and flavor. i like it a little hot and heavy on the flavor, so just tone down the ingredients where you think i may have lost my mind. i may have.
4 lb ground 99% fat free turkey
3 bags of Trader Joe's cut butternut squash
3 lb zucchini
3 full bunches of celery
9 bell peppers, various colors
2 large yellow onions
4 bulbs of garlic
3/4 cup chili powder
1/2 cup unsweetened cocoa powder
1 tbsp cinnamon
2 tbsp cayenne pepper
1 tbsp red chili flakes
1 tbsp black pepper
1 tbsp cumin
simple to make...
1 chop all veggies, cook on stove in pot and stir while they cook down a bit
2 brown the meat separate and crumble
3 add meat to veggies, add all spices, add can of tomato paste, stir, cook for a while longer
4 eat. i like it with a little fresh avocado on top.
