  • 1 medium yellow onion diced
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 2 cups butternut squash cubed
  • 2 cans 15 oz. each chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1 can 14 oz. diced tomatoes (I like fire roasted)
  • 1/4 cup tomato sauce I used marinara
  • 2 tbsp adobo sauce*
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Place all ingredients in your slow cooker, stir then cook on high for 4 hours.
  • Scoop chili into bowl and serve with a side of mac and cheese (totally optional but SO good).
  • Enjoy!


*If you have adobo sauce, use that. If not, harissa paste will also work.
