Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili

I love using my slow cooker year round but it is especially great in the cooler months.  Chili’s are some of my favorite things to make because the flavors and spices blend together while it slow cooks all day.  This is such a busy time of the year that it is so perfect to throw everything into a slow cooker and be ready when you need it.  I hate at the end of a meal being left with a slow cooker to scrub.  Thankfully, Reynolds Kitchens solved the dreaded soak and scrub with their amazing slow cooker liners.

How incredible is it at the end of a busy night to have zero clean up and toss the liner in the trash?  These things are guaranteed clean up in eight seconds or less!  They are life changing and save the time and headache of a slow cooker to clean.  They are made of a heat resistant nylon (no plastic!) and are BPA-free.

I used the regular size in the slow cooker, but they are available in regular and small.  The regular size will fit 4-8 quarts and the small size fits 1-3 quarts.  I have a big family so we usually use a 4 quart slow cooker, and with a recipe this delicious, you will want a big batch!

How do you make slow cooker pumpkin chili?

  • Start by adding your ground beef to a medium sized skillet.  Cook and crumble until almost cooked throughout.  Add in your peppers and onions and continue to cook until the ground beef is tender and no longer pink and drain remaining grease.
  • Add your liner to your slow cooker.  Add the ground beef, beans, tomatoes, tomato paste, pumpkin puree, beef broth, chili powder, cumin, salt, pepper, oregano, garlic powder and bay leaves.
  • Cook on low for 4-6 hours or high for 3.  Remove bay leaves and adjust seasonings if needed.

Can you make pumpkin chili on the stove?

Yes you can.  Add all of the ingredients to a large pot and make sure to simmer for at least an hour to let the flavors blend.

Can you freeze pumpkin chili?

You can easily freeze chili.  You can put it in the fridge the night before to defrost. Make sure the chili is fully defrosted and heat throughout before serving.

I know that you guys are going to love these slow cooker liners just as much as I do.  They are a complete lifesaver when it comes to scrubbing a dirty slow cooker.
