Could I be any more obsessed with squash? I see people at the grocery store looking for pumpkins to carve for Halloween. I am the only one searching the bin for the best pumpkins to make recipes with. And I actually had the balls to tell some poor little kid that he better not throw out his pumpkin seeds without roasted them in a delicious wasabi spice. He gave me a snotty look. Sheesh.
This is a EASY slow cooker recipe that is delicious. My co worker trialed the recipe using fresh pumpkin and she used jalapeno peppers instead of the chipotle peppers, it came out with a totally different taste. She also didn't use corn and used more chickpeas. Both great, but one was more "mexican" and the one with chipotle was more "warm". This is why I love slow cooker recipes. You can make it own with a few modifications!
