As soon as winter squash hit the markets, we are all about adding it to much of our cooking! We love winter squash, and for me, it is a great alternative to potatoes, especially sweet potatoes, since I have a potato intolerance. My intolerance feels pretty unfortunate during the summer when the primary alternative is plantains, and they are hit or miss at the grocery store.

So, if you see me at the grocery store this fall, I will be stocking up and probably have a cart or basket full of squash. There will be a few delicata because I think you should just probably have at least a couple on hand at all times when they are in season. Then, I definitely need butternut and spaghetti squashes too, because you never know when you might want to whip up a hash or a casserole.

Adding squash to chili like we have in this Paleo squash chili is just so delicious. It adds a little tender sweetness and another layer of texture combined with the peppers, onions and tomatoes. Plus, it is way more friendly on your stomach than legumes. So, just put squash in it instead of the beans. You’ll get your fiber, and feel satisfied without the bloat. You will also love the chunky texture and mildly spicy flavors. They will keep you warm and cozy all fall and winter!

  • This really was the best chili ever. I substituted butternut squash instead of delicate and I did add beans. It was so yummy, thank you!

    • Hooray! So happy you love it! It’s a favorite of ours too, and we’ve done butternut squash when we haven’t had delicata on hand. So good! Thanks so much for trying our recipe and taking the time to come back and leave a comment! Hope to see you again soon! 🙂
