Crockpot Turkey Chili with White Beans and Pumpkin

Winter is tough — what makes it easier? Chili!

Use turkey instead of beef in this lower-calorie hearty alternative to the real thing.

There is a secret ingredient in there – shh don’t tell. It’s pumpkin. It thickens it up and just adds a full flavor. I make this once a or twice a month to have healthy meals throughout the week. Feel free to add additional veggies if you’d like. Also, feel feee to make it Spicy!!
