Lamb stew recipe with butternut squash

I am not such a fast mover now that I am in my forties, but yesterday morning I ventured into the conservatory and I suddenly moved quicker than my son seeing an open jar of Nutella !!! It was bloody freezing and I am sure if someone bumped into me, I could of easily impaled them onto my chest (get my drift !!)

Winter is here and that means finding a long tenancy spot on my kitchen top for the slow cooker. I have some fab recipes for this basic bit of kit and use it a lot for batch cooking. I hope that you like this one. It is a lamb stew recipe with delicious Mexican flavour and butternut squash too!


All this super simple dish requires is…..

I packet of lamb cubes

1 butternut squash peeled and diced

1 packet of fajita mix

1 tin of tomatoes

1 tin of kidney beans

sour cream, coriander, onion and tomato to garnish


This is a great meal to get the kids involved with as it is just a case of putting everything into the slow cooker, putting the lid on and leaving for two hours !


Turn this on a low heat for an all day slow cook or a high heat for a two hour cook.

It really is that easy, I topped this off with some sour cream and finely chopped some coriander, tomato and onion. This gave it a bit of colour and really set it off.

You can also make some homemade tortilla to accompany this.

I hope that you enjoy this belly warmer dinner – who doesn’t love a good lamb stew recipe? X
