- Crock-Pot Pumpkin Chili
Makes 6 servingsIngredients
1 lb. lean ground beef or turkey (at least 93% lean)
1 medium onion, chopped…
1 large red bell pepper, diced
1 large green bell pepper, diced
1 jalapeno pepper, chopped (optional)
1 (15 oz.) can no salt added kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15 oz.) can no salt added black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5 oz.) can fired roasted diced tomatoes
1 (14.5 oz.) can diced tomatoes with jalapenos
1 cup reduced sodium beef or chicken broth (depending on whether you used beef or turkey)
1 (15 oz.) can pumpkin puree
1 Tbsp. chili powder (Hot Mexican Style is great!)
2 tsp. cumin
½ tsp. black pepper
¼ tsp. cinnamon (optional)
Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add ground beef and brown until fully cooked. Pour beef into a colander and rinse under hot water to remove excess grease.
Coat a slow cooker with cooking spray. Add beef, and remaining ingredients. Stir well to combine. Cook on low heat 6-8 hours. Serve hot. Garnish with reduced fat cheese, non-fat Greek yogurt or avocado if desired.
*For extra spice, replace the fire roasted tomatoes with a second can of diced tomatoes in jalapenos.
*This recipe can also be made in a large pot on the stove, if you do not have a slow cooker.
