Don’t worry about if your family doesn’t love my pumpkin, they will never know. I have been making this pumpkin chili for years and my husband who detests anything pumpkin adores this chili.

How to Make Pumpkin Chili


  • 2 lb of ground beef, browned
  • 1 onion. chopped
  • 1 green pepper, diced
  • 2 T garlic, minced
  • 2 T cumin
  • 2 T chili powder
  • 2 t oregano
  • 2  15 oz cans of pumpkin
  • 2 15 oz cans of red kidneys beans, drained
  • 2 15 oz cans of black beans, drained
  • 3 14.5 oz cans of diced tomatoes
  • 1 c of water
  • Cheddar Cheese, shredded
  • Sour Cream (optional)
  • cilantro, chopped (optional


Throw all the ingredients in slow cooker except for cheddar cheese, sour cream, and cilantro. Mix well. Cook on high for 4 hours of low for 6 hours. Serve with cheddar cheese, dollop of sour cream, and cilantro on top of chili. 

I always serve chili with either tortilla chips or cornbread.

Super easy, huh?

The pumpkin gives just a hint of sweetness, but you would never know it’s in there. Your secret is safe with me.
