Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili

If you want to use pumpkin a little differently this fall, our Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili is a must! We’ve used black beans for meatless protein, but feel free to add cooked ground turkey or beef if you prefer a version with meat. This chili is loaded with flavor from the vegetables, peppers, pumpkin, and a unique blend of spices. Best of all, it’s insanely easy to make, since you only have to throw everything in a slow cooker and walk away for a few hours.

We know putting pumpkin in your chili sounds crazy, but see for yourself! Make up a batch this weekend and serve with cornbread and brown rice. We know you’ll love it!
