Happy Halloween Eve!
Welcome to the 4th Annual Crock-tober!
October + Crock Pots + Cold Weather + Comfort Food= Crock-tober
I meant to get this posted earlier today put that didn't happen. We were up too late celebrating the Giants winning the World Series! WOW! What a game!!!!
Anyways, back to Crocktober :)
This is always one of my favorite link ups!
I LOVE my Crock Pot.
As a working mom, my Crock Pot is a staple during the Fall & Winter months.
They make my life & dinner time so much easier!
Can I get an Amen?
You are going to love this Crock Pot meal that I am sharing with you today.
It is healthy, delicious & very easy to make!
Here is what you need:
- 1 lb of Ground Turkey (I use Jenni-O)
- 1 (15 oz) can of Canned Pumpkin
- 2 cans of black beans (drained)
- 2 cans of diced tomatoes
- 1 can of diced green chilies
- 1 can of Chicken (or Veggie) Broth
- 1 or 2 Sweet Potatoes/Yams (peeled & diced into cubes)
- 1 green pepper, diced
- 1 yellow onion, diced (I use the pre-diced ones because my eyes can't handle cutting onions)
- 1 packet of Chili Seasoning
Brown your ground Turkey in a pan. I sprinkle my meat with some garlic powder to give more flavor. I also used a handful of the diced onion to saute with the meat.
While your meat is cooking, cut up your green peppers.
Rinse & Drain your Black Beans.
Peel & cut up your Sweet Potatoes.
(I just used 1 sweet potato for this batch)
Your meat should be done cooking, so now it's time to put everything in the crock pot.
I put the meat on bottom, then I added the diced tomatoes, onions, green chilies, can of pumpkin, black beans, green peppers & sweet potatoes.
Then, I sprinkle the packet of Chili Seasoning on top.
Give the pot a big stir to mix everything up and then put the lid on your crock pot & walk away!
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 4-6 hours.
When you are ready to serve, put in bowls and then garnish!
We like garnishing the chili with shredded cheese, sour cream & avocado!
I serve this with homemade cornbread & whipped honey butter. YUM.
You can serve this with a side salad if you want, but it is a hearty meal on it's own & it has veggies in it....pumpkin, sweet potato & green peppers.
My girls are really picky eaters and they gobbled this right up.
It's packed full of protein also!
It is perfect Fall meal.
