Crock Pot Pumpkin Chili

Crock pot pumpkin chili has the warmth of a traditional chili, but the addition of the pumpkin and cinnamon set it up as a perfect fall dish. 

Normally when I do pumpkin dishes, I tend to go sweet. Even with something that is known to be savory (like pumpkin pastes), I tend to make it sweet. For some reason, we seem to be conditioned to view pumpkin as a dessert vegetable. Which is unfortunate, because a lot of my favorite dinner dishes feature pumpkin. Such as pumpkin lasagna and cream of pumpkin soup (which goes pretty well with grilled cheese made from pumpkin yeast bread). 

Clearly I eat a lot of pumpkin this time of year.

My favorite recipe, hands down, has to be this crock pot pumpkin chili recipe. It’s the perfectly savory and spice, and the cinnamon gives it a nice flavor you don’t get with other chili recipes.

  • 1 (15 oz) can of pumpkin
  • 2 (15 oz) cans chili beans
  • 1 (15 oz) can of “chili ready” diced tomatoes (found this at Kroger)

  • 4 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 carrots, diced

Step 01: Brown the meat and put all of the ingredients into a crock pot. Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours. (If using a stove top, load everything into a stock pot, bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer for 20-30 minutes.) Serve and enjoy!

The cinnamon probably sounds weird, but it’s so good. When used right, it can be pretty savory, and it really brings out the pumpkin.
