If you’re looking for a unique and delicious way to incorporate pumpkin into your meals this Fall, try this easy to make Pumpkin & Ground Turkey Chili recipe. This yummy and comforting meal is perfect for cooler weather.

Why Pumpkin? It actually gives the chili such a unique and rich flavor! And when combined with the tomato juice, it yields a creamy smooth texture. Pumpkin also has some awesome health benefits including loads of antioxidants, high in Vitamins A, C, and fiber. 🙂

Slow Cooker Pumpkin & Ground Turkey Chili Recipe

Heavily adapted from


1 lb. ground turkey
1 medium onion, chopped
2 bell peppers, chopped (one red, one green)
2 – 14.5oz. cans diced tomatoes
1 – 15.25oz can black beans, drained
1 – 15oz. can red kidney beans, drained
1/2 of a 15oz. can pureed pumpkin
32 oz. 100% tomato juice
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 tablespoon chili powder

How to make pumpkin turkey chili in the slow cooker


Brown onion and turkey on the stove, drain if necessary, and season with salt & pepper. Place the cooked ground turkey & onions in the slow cooker with the rest of ingredients. Stir, cover and cook until the chili thickens and the flavors combine – about 6-8 hours on low or 4-6 hours on high. Makes about 8 servings.

Note: You can also make this a quick one-pot meal on the stove by simply browning meat, adding ingredients, stirring, and letting simmer for an hour. Make this as a make ahead freezer meal by cooking meat, cooling, and then placing all ingredients in a freezer safe Ziploc bag or two. Store in the freezer – when you’re ready to cook, just defrost and place on stove or in slow cooker.
