Then I thought about mixing up a healthy, gluten free chili in a crock pot (or a slow cooker as some may call it). I decided on including a healthier element in a simple chili recipe, Pumpkin seemed like a logical and sweet answer. After adding in a whole can of pumpkin, a can of rotel, vegetable broth, a whole bell pepper, 1/2 an onion, and some garlic - I feel like I had a full serving of veggies in a bowl of this sweet and spicy chili. Plus using turkey instead of beef makes this recipe slightly healthier as well!
This easy, crock pot chili recipe is the perfect winter treat! With a good spicy kick of flavors and a surprisingly light sweetness - it's a staple in my home! It's the perfect meal to throw in your crock pot while you are cleaning house or while working on a project. The smell is out of this world and the taste is even better. This dish simmers in the crock pot for 4-5 hours, so go ahead and prep it around lunch time for the perfect dinner! You'll definitely want to have the fixings for your chili as well, I like reduced fat ritz crackers and a bit of low-fat cheese on my chili... what do you like on yours?
