Crock Pot Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili Recipe

Crock Pot Turkey White Bean Pumpkin Chili

A perfect fall chili made with pumpkin puree, ground turkey, white beans, green chili and spices. Top this with chopped fresh cilantro, scallions, jalapeños, light sour  cream, and/or reduced fat cheddar and serve it with baked  chips on the side for a wonderful lunch or dinner.

I am so happy to share this one with you!!! Not all my crock pot experiments get me excited, but when they do they wind up here on Skinnytaste. The pumpkin is not sweet at all, in fact, if you don’t mention it, no one would even know it’s there but it does add beautiful color to the chili and for picky eaters, a great way to sneak in vegetables.

This is pretty mild as far as heat goes, if you want more kick use chipotle chili powder in place of the chili powder and use it according to your taste. Leftovers can be frozen, enjoy!
