Pumpkin Chili Recipe
This pumpkin chili recipe is so easy to make and only takes 5 hours in your slow cooker! First you’ll want to brown the ground turkey in a pan with the peppers before throwing it in the crockpot. After that, throw all your other ingredients inside!
I love beans in my chili so I had to add both black beans and kidney beans. Also I love using ground turkey for chili as a healthy alternative to ground beef.
So what makes this Chili Mexican? Well we’re going to spice it up with green chiles, salsa verde, cumin and we’re going to throw corn into this! If you want you can even throw avocado, shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream on top when it’s done!
