Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Slow Cooker Turkey Pumpkin Chili

This slow cooker turkey pumpkin chili is a delicious, warming recipe for chilly fall nights. I can't express how much I enjoyed this chili. In general, I'm a chili fan, but this chili hits all the best flavor combos. Who knew turkey and pumpkin were such a good match?!

I've said this here before and I'll say it again - the best slow cooker recipes are ones you can leave on overnight or when you go to work. I like a LOOONG recipe - preferably one that goes for 8 hours. I've tested this recipe both ways - one on the low and slow 8 hours and the other on high for 3 hours and they're both great.

There are a lot of optional toppings listed below, because I think soup/chili is really elevated with a solid amount of toppings. I chose to go with yogurt, cilantro, and pepitas for the bowls pictured - which is an absolutely wonderful combination. Other honorable mentions include avocado and goat's cheese - they bring the same creamy quality as the yogurt.
