Slow Cooker Butternut Squash Soup

“I created this slow cooker recipe a few years ago. It is so yummy and savory especially on a cold day. I never really had an official recipe for it, I just added spices until I thought there was enough! Luckily my friend, Katie, did take the time to measure out the spices one of the times she made it! Hope you enjoy it as much as I do. If you want it to be more soupy, add more chicken broth.”

    I am not a huge fan of corn in soups and I’m allergic to tomatoes. Is there something I can sub in for these ingredients or can I just leave them out altogether??

    • Gale Compton  June 16, 2017

      You can leave them out but do sub the tomatoes with a little chicken broth.

    Also how would it change the nutrition if I added 4 chicken breasts (or whatever meat you reccomend)? I gotta have my meat ?!
    Thank you guys so much for making and posting these recipes! My mom and I have been avoiding crockpot meals because they can skyrocket in calorie count, but the game is on now.

      Suvanna, Great! For one serving with one chicken breast it would add about 3-4 smart points depending on the size. 🙂
