"This is a recipe that is now a favorite in our house. I've made this with 4 to 6 potatoes instead of squash and both are excellent!"
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

chipotle chili powder
ground black pepper
1 (4 pound)
skinless, boneless turkey breast half
acorn squash, seeded and cut into quarters
carrots, peeled and cut into 3 pieces
red onions, quartered
unpeeled garlic cloves
The flavor of the turkey was really nice.. I liked the bit of heat. The acorn squash was yummy too. The carrots and garlic were not done enough in 7 hours. My crock-pot was set on a timer and then went to warm so I didn't get a chance to test them at 7 hours. If I had, I would have extended the cooking time. My own fault, but I think I might cut the carrots smaller next time and chop the garlic up
Scrumptious! This is also a very "forgiving" recipe; I used regular chili powder and cumin (which derives from the same plant) substituted nicely for coriander. And with no garlic cloves, I added a liberal amount of prepared crushed garlic. The flavor was still divine, and the meat so tender it was almost falling apart. The red onions are definitely an inspired idea. I added the carrots and onions only and served the dish with mashed 'taters. This is a keeper!
This is a perfect fall meal. I switched out the squash for red and Yukon potatoes and I would cut the chipotle seasoning in half next time because I'm not a fan of too spicy. Other than that I thought all the spices and seasonings worked well with the turkey, I will be making this again.
The spices on the turkey were superb, just a hint of heat and undertones of the cinnamon. The meat was very juicy not dry at all. I enjoyed the carrots, red onion, and squash, but my kids would have liked potatoes more. Would make again??
Very good turkey recipe. I make it for thanksgiving as it is a crowd pleaser, plus it is much easier than a whole turkey.
Recipe was very good just wish I had a larger crock pot. The dish had a lovely sweetness and reintroduced me to acorn squash which I enjoyed.
