I'm totally falling for fall. How about you? It's still a bit warm here, but we have some surprisingly chilly weather on the way this week. Will I actually need to bundle up? Time will tell! When I think of fall foods, butternut squash is an easy favorite. Trying to find a fun way to use this squash in a unique way, I decided to add it to one of my favorite go to recipes. Let's make this Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Salsa Chicken! This post is sponsored by Mirum and Crock-Pot® brand, all opinions are my own.
One of my family's favorite Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker recipes is my salsa chicken where I add a jar of salsa and a can of cheddar soup. It makes for the perfect dish! To turn my classic recipe into something with a little fall twist, adding fresh cubed butternut squash was a no-brainer. Any other time of the year, I probably never would have thought of this flavor combo, but I'm glad it did because this turned out so delicious.

To make this recipe, I've combined boneless chicken, cheddar soup, a jar of salsa and two cups of chopped butternut squash cubes. Simply cook in your Crock-Pot® Slow Cooker on high until chicken is cooked through. Simple and delicious.
