Easy Slowcooker Pumpkin Chili


If you know me, you know I love all things pumpkin. I also really love chili, and before today, I had never made it before! So I decided to give it a whirl and whip up my own version of pumpkin chili. Turns out, it tastes pretty darn good and it was so easy!

I am new to the kitchen. Yes, for the majority of my children’s lives we have eaten food that comes from a box or on a good day, the food bar at Whole Foods. As I move more fully into the role of homemaker, something that has always been a dream of mine to do, I am expanding my cooking horizons. By dumping food into a slow cooker. You’ve got to start somewhere, right?
