I’ve always wanted to try a pumpkin chili. So fun that it’s a slow cooker recipe too!
Every year I make a pumpkin chili and what I love most about it is its subtle flavor. It’s not so overwhelming where everyone immediately knows they’re being fed pumpkin.
I cannot wait to make this! It’s the perfect season for chili, and with pumpkin in it, it’s going to be amazing!
I’ve never had pumpkin chili before, I definitely need to try this!
Looks so comforting, hearty and delicious! Saving this recipe for colder days 🙂
