beef butternut cocoa chili

Looking for a recipe for a chili for the 49ers Super Bowl?

Here is a great option...

...this one I made on the day the won the NFC Championship over the Falcons

Bison(I used Grass Fed Beef) & Butternut Cocoa Chili

Mix this first group of ingredients
3 Cloves Garlic, smashed
1tbs smoked paprika
2 tbs chili powder
1 tbs chipotle powder
1 tbs cinnamon
1 tbs 100% cocoa powder
1.5 tbs sea salt
2 tsp black pepper
32 oz diced tomatoes, or 4 cups fresh, diced

Place these ingredients in slow cooker and cover with the mixture from above
1 lb grass fed beef stew meat (or bison)
2 cups butternut squash, peeled and diced into 2in chunks
1 onion, diced into 2in pieces
1 bell pepper, diced into 2in pieces

Cook on low for 4-6 hours

Think beef is unhealthy for you?  Do you stay away from red meat because "it's gonna clog your arteries and cause a heart attack"?
