Another excellent albeit surprising use for pumpkin this fall is in everyone’s favorite savory dish, chili. This one can be made in a slow cooker although some ingredients need a saute beforehand. The combination includes chicken, beans and quinoa mixed into the pumpkin puree. A blend of jalapeno and sweet red pepper combine to add color and flavor. The slow cooker time varies on your model and your preference for low or high heat but after a traditional chili simmer, you’ll have another new way to craft a chili and a whole new way to use pumpkin.

Key Takeaways:

  • This recipe combines hearty fare like pumpkin, quinoa, and chicken into a delicious chili.
  • The chili is a great and easy item to prepare thanks to its slow cooker flexibility.
  • Thanks to that flexibility it’s either 6-7 hours in the slow cooker or 3 hours on the stove top.
