Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

1 butternut squash (approx. 2 lb) peeled, seeded, diced
1 can (14.5-oz) tomatoes, including juice
1 can (15-oz) whole-kernel corn, drained
1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 green bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch pieces
1 canned green chili, coarsely chopped
1/2 cup chicken (or vegetable for vegetarians) broth
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1 1/2 tbsp tomato paste

Combine everything except the tomato paste in a slow cooker or crockpot.  Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 6 hours or until the squash is tender.

Remove 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid and mix with the tomato paste; stir into the cooker.  Cook another half hour or so until the mixture is slightly thickened and heat through.

Yield: 6 to 8 servings
