Ingredients
  • 1 lb ground turkey (you could also use ground beef, or no meat if you prefer
  • 4- 8 oz or 1- 29 oz can of unsalted tomato sauce
  • 2- 14.5 or 1- 29 oz can of diced tomatoes
  • 1 large onion
  • 2-3 bell peppers (I like to use red and green)
  • 3 Tbsp taco or chili seasoning
  • 2- 14.5 oz cans of red kidney beans (or 4 cups of cooked beans, you can also use a mix of your favorite beans)
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ tsp cayenne pepper (more if you like your chili spicier)
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 Tbsp chili powder (more if you want it spicy)
  • 3 Tbsp cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Favorite chili toppings- shredded cheddar cheese, green onions, corn chips, sour cream
Instructions
  1. Dice up your peppers and onion.
  2. Heat a large skillet over high heat with a little oil. Saute the meat, onion, and peppers until the meat is no longer cooked. Transfer to a large stock pot.
  3. Pour the remaining ingredients over the meat mixture and bring to a boil. Lower the heat to medium-low, cover and let simmer for at least 1 hour. The longer you simmer, the better.
  4. To cook in the slow cooker, brown meat and vegetables as above. Place all ingredients in a slow cooker and cook on low for 6 to 8 hours.
