Spicy Pumplin Crockpot Chili || the perfect fall meal that you can throw together & forget!

Even though it’s still a whopping 90 degrees in good ol’ Florida right now, my body + mind are craving fall staples. Chili, cozy sweaters, falling leaves, crisp air, apple cider… just to name a few. Since the weather is out of my control, I decided to give into my fall cravings and whip up some chili in the crockpot! This spicy pumpkin crockpot chili was the perfect solution to my cravings.

I’ve never actually had pumpkin in chili before, but the sweet, earthy flavors combined perfectly with the spicy kick of jalapeno and heartiness of the veggies. I made my chili vegan, but you can easily swap out my meatless crumbles for some ground turkey, beef, or chicken! I typically sub out meat in my soups for portobello mushrooms; something I would for sure do next time. πŸ™‚


Questions for you:

  1. Have you ever had pumpkin chili before?
  2. What’s your favorite fall recipe?
  3. Apple cider or eggnog?

    Do you cook your meat before you add it to the crockpot or am I able to put the turkey in there frozen?

      You would need to cook the meat before putting it in the crockpot with the other ingredients. However, you could cook the meat in the crockpot first for a few hours and then add in the rest of the chili ingredients if you wanted to keep it all in one “pan”.

      Good luck!
