I have this favorite brisket recipe I love making. The problem is, it always leaves us with a ton of left overs! I often like to make it when I am cooking dinner for a new neighbor or a friend who just had a baby. It easily feeds two families.
This time I tried something different. I made chili out of it! I was inspired by this recipe from epicurious.com, but ended doing my own things since I didn’t have all of the other items needed for their recipe. Plus, it just doesn’t feel like chili to me without some beans in it!
I feel like the butternut squash really made the chili! It was delicious! I will be making this again probably every time we have left over brisket!
- Beef Brisket (cooked cut into small chunks)
- 1 can black beans (rinsed and drained)
- 1 can diced tomatoes
- 1 can tomato sauce
- 1 large onion (diced)
- 1 butternut squash (peeled, seeded, and cut into cubes)
- 2 tb chili powder
- 1 tb cumin
- 1 tb minced garlic
- Throw all of the above ingredients into the crockpot and stir it a bit. Cook on low for 4- 6 hours. Yummy!
