Butternut Bison Chili

Here is an appropriate fall recipe. Good for those cool nights with the family or fantastic for leftover meals through the week!

The butternut squash gives this chili the spirit of starchy comfort food while still being a relatively low-carb meal. Alternative ways to enjoy this hearty stew include adding some paleo biscuits (here or here) or over some grilled grass-fed hot dogs!
