Slow Cooker Recipe: Pumpkin Black-Bean Turkey Chili

Fall is in the air and on my mind.  With Halloween just days away, I have pumpkin on the brain…so why not have some for dinner?
I found this recipe for Pumpkin Black-Bean Turkey Chili in one of my Fix it and Forget It cookbooks (love these!!).  This would be a delicious start to Halloween Night fun!!  But, don’t think that this comfort food recipe is for Halloween only; this warm and hearty chili is great for any cold night.
