I only took one picture of the butternut squash moose chili making process because I was watching Mistresses at the same time and got caught up. Why’d they kill off Karen?!
Despite the lack of photos, this recipe is way too yummy not to post!
I guess the only difference between this chili recipe and any other is that moose adds a hearty, gamey flavor- so I did what I could to add as many spices as possible, in addition to adding the butternut squash for a nice sweet balance.
How did we end up with moose meat? While I was in Boston Aaron went on a hunting trip with one of his co-workers. He said he only shot a few grouse but ended up bringing home about 5 lbs of meat that his co-worker had killed and already prepared.
90% of the time we eat chicken or fish, so I was excited to try something a little different!
A warm, hearty meal for a chilly fall night.
You obviously don’t have to use moose, as it’s hard to come by- beef would be just as tasty!
