Crock Pot Pumpkin Chili

Happy Sunday friends! Our cold front came in last night and what perfect timing for this chili recipe!  I have been experimenting this past week with this recipe and so glad I can share it with y’all!  This dish, is an easy crock pot dinner for the family and screams fall! I love cooking with pumpkin, and this is just one recipe where you can add pumpkin and not “taste it” if you are worried. 😉

I hope you enjoy this Pumpkin Chili as much as we do! I would love to hear from you if you try it. :).

  1. Now that the weather is getting cooler…YAY….I plan on making this tomorrow. Need more crock pot vegetarian recipes since school has started for me and will be easier with this full days/long nights.
