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.

    Great recipe! I just made a batch of beans, preparing to make chili. Now I’ll use your recipe. Maybe add some canned chipotle for an extra smoky kick. Thanks!

    So weird that I just purchased ground turkey and chili powder and then saw this. Get out of my head Lina! It’s a scary place, lol.

    • Emilie

  10. rachel

    Yum! It’s supposed to be quite chilly here this weekend…perfect for making chili! Making this for Sunday 🙂

    • Jean

      My husband doesn’t like chili or cumin. So i’m going to make this with Italian seasonings and see what happens…:)

  11. michelle

    I’m thinking chunks of sweet potatoes would work in place of the pumpkin puree since I would prefer chunks. Must be chili week because I made chocolate chili yesterday.

  12. jmfromOh

    Made it today and even my almost-three-year old loved it!

    You said that it serves 8. About how much per person?

    I’m making this now for my work chili cookoff contest tomorrow. I got northern white beans in place of the black beans, and added a can of diced tomatoes with green chili’s. Can’t wait!
