Rated 5 out of 5 by from My GoTo chili recipe! I have made this chili a gazillion times... it’s so so so delicious! Sometimes I add cooked ground turkey, sometimes not. I always use my TS Wahoo Chili Seasoning instead of chili powder. Best. Chili. Ever!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Fall Chili This is a wonderful slow cooker chili recipe. I like the twist of adding butternut squash. It is such a delicious, hearty dish, the men didn't even realize there was no meat in it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Healthy comfort food! Love this recipe, it's a staple fall through winter. I substitute TS Wahoo Chili for the chili in the recipe. Make it vegetarian by using vegetable broth instead of chicken broth and use vegetarian refried beans.
