Butternut squash is very nutritious and delicious. It’s a “winter squash” so is generally available autumn through winter. Butternut squash has a thin skin which is easily peeled off with a vegetable peeler. It's edible, if you are looking for extra fiber, but in the Crockin’ Girls kitchen we prefer this tasty squash peeled. After peeling, halve it and scoop out the seeds, then chop!

Ingredients

  • 1 can of golden corn, drained
  • 2 cans of black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can of diced tomatoes with chilies
  • 1 can of fire roasted tomatoes
  • 1.5-2 pounds of 1-inch cubes of butternut squash (deseeded &peeled)
  • Half large white onion, diced
  • 1 quart (32 ounces) chicken or vegetable stock or broth
  • 2 teaspoons of garlic powder
  • 5 tablespoons taco seasoning (add more or less if you want more of this flavor)
  • A few dashes of Siracha or Hot Sauce (a little goes a long way!)
  • Whole wheat, macaroni noodles (optional, if you’re watching carbs)
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon pepper

Directions

  1. Step One

    Combine all ingredients into slow cooker

  2. Step Two

    Cook on HIGH for 4 hours or on LOW for 6 to 7 hours, or until the butternut squash is cooked through and tender.

  3. Step Three

    Optional: During the last 10-12 minutes, add half a box of uncooked whole wheat macaroni noodles. They’ll cook perfectly in the soup and stay nice and al dente.

  4. Step Four

    When ready to serve, top with sour cream or, even better, hi-protein and lower fat plain Greek yogurt along with fresh cilantro.

    If you would rather use sugar, do it. It will be fine. You can also use 1 teaspoon of stevia which is a natural sweetener.

    I’m sure the soups are good, but I was disappointed that they used splenda. Artifical sweeteners are sooooooo bad for you. I can’t believe that 1 TB of sugar in a lg pot of soup like that would make that much difference.

    Nice, hearty soup. Although I would leave out the hot sauce next time (I’m a light weight!) I loved the crunch of the canned corn vs. frozen like I normally use. I added ‘wacky spiral’ noodles (veggie noodles-colored green and orange) for a lovely color. I added them about 30 mts before serving. I did use only 3 TBS of taco seasoning-was plenty. I may add some pre browned turkey next time for a even heavier soup. :)

    Happy to see your new healthy heart recipes! They look wonderful, I can’t wait to try them! The guests hosts did a great job. Seemed very professional… but did I miss the explanation? Are they the writers? Or were they chosen as viewers? I did miss Jenna & Nicole, too! It was a surprise not to see them Monday morning! I will look forward to more healthy heart recipes!

    The black bean and butternut squash soup was great. I’m always looking for something a little different and this hit the spot. I made mine a little more spicy and added cooked brown rice before serving. I would definetely make it again.
