Crockpot Pumpkin Chili

So the rage all over the blogs this year is pumpkin chili. At frist this was a turn off for me but after reading several reviews I decided to try it one night when my hubby was at work. This recipe is fantastic. You really don't taste the pumpkin and it make the chili so thick and creamy. My kids had 2 big bowls of it and loved it. I did tell them what was in afterwards and they were like it is yummy. Enjoy

Slow Cooked Pumpkin Chili

1 onion, chopped
3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 cups chicken broth
2 cans of black beans, drained and rinsed
1 lb of ground beef
1 – 15 ounce can of pumpkin
2- 14 ounce cans of diced tomatoes
1 teaspoon of dried parsley
2 teaspoons of chili powder ( add more if you like things spicier)
1 teaspoon of oregano
1 1/2 teaspoon of cumin

Cook onion and ground beef until onion is tender and the beef is done.
Add garlic and cook for 1 minute more.
Place meat, onion, garlic mixture into a crockpot.
Add remaining ingredients.
Cook on low for 5-6 hours.
Serve and enjoy.
