Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili
This Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili recipe is amazing! I admit, I was a little leery when I read that it had pumpkin puree in it. I’m not a huge fan of pumpkin (don’t shoot me!) – but I was told it wouldn’t have an overwhelming pumpkin flavor – so I went for it, and I’m so glad I did. It’s a gorgeous, bright chili that feels like you’re serving up a bowll full of fall. And the pumpkin adds a creaminess that I haven’t found with other chili recipes. Not to mention the added nutrients from the pumpkin puree.
I used my homemade pumpkin puree that was super easy to make.
2 pounds of ground turkey
1/2 tsp olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
1 teaspoon, chili powder
2 bay leaves
2 teaspoon, cumin
1 teaspoon, oregano
2 cans white northern beans or navy beans (15 oz), rinsed and drained
2 cups chicken broth
15 oz pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin filling)
Make your own with a $0.99 Sugar Pumpkin – here’s my tutorial for homemade pumpkin puree. I actually threw my into the crockpot frozen, since I had frozen the puree in 1 cup increments.
4.0 oz – 4.5 oz canned chopped green chili
salt and pepper to taste
Optional garnishes: chopped cilantro, chives, sour cream, avocados, chips
