Crockpot Farro and Butternut Squash Chili

Another cold and rainy Spring day in Kansas City had me craving some chili. Plus with the COVID-19 outbreak, I’m trying to make things that are easily frozen and reheated. So I decided to grab a bunch of things things that I had on hand, dump them in my crockpot, and hope for the best.

Y’all, I’m so excited about how this turned out! Such an amazing blend of flavors! And…wait for it…our mini foodie loved it too!
