Slow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili Recipe

Disclosure AffiliateSlow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili Recipe

Once fall starts coming around we start seeing Pumpkin Spice Everything! As soon as the first leaf falls in the northern climates it’s a mad rush to grab the pumpkin. But it seems like almost all the foods using pumpkin are sweet. Why is that? Pumpkin is actually a vegetable and we usually see veggies in savory dishes rather than sweet. So, amid all the pumpkin muffins, cookies and cakes of the fall, I want to share this Slow Cooker Pumpkin Turkey Chili recipe. It’s a hearty and delicious meal perfect for fall. And one of the great things about it is that it cooks right up in the slow cooker. And using ground turkey rather than beef (which of course you can do instead if you want), it makes a lean meal packed with veggies and beans.

Since this recipe calls for browning the turkey and onions before adding to the slow cooker, I love to use my Cuisinart 3-In-1 Cook Central Multi-Cooker. It lets you brown/saute the food right in the cooker and then switch over to continue to cool on a slow cook setting. It means no extra dishes and basically one less step.

If you won’t be browning your turkey in a slow cooker, then I recommend using a slow cooker liner for this dish. You can find them here. Once you are done cooking and serving, just pull the liner of the pot and throw away. You’ll be left with a totally clean slow cooker with nothing to wash!

    My husband’s two faves, pumpkin anything (haha) and chili. He’d love me forever if I made this for him.
