Pumpkin season is running at us full speed. Soon pumpkin everything will be everywhere. It will be totally unavoidable. But instead of sweets today we are thinking savory. This Crockpot Pumpkin Chili is a great twist on a classic that is full of flavor.
Dare I say, it is a healthier version of the original because not only are you using vitamin packed pumpkin, but ground turkey instead of ground beef. The flavor that this chili has is incredible. It is perfect for a nice crisp fall day.
