All the tummy-warming flavors of fall in a sweet and spicy bowl of chili.
Drizzle the olive oil into a large pot over medium-high heat. Once oil is hot, add ground turkey. Stir to break turkey into pieces and cook over medium high heat until ground turkey is browned.
Meanwhile, in the bowl of your crockpot, combine pumpkin puree, water, milk, chicken broth, tomato paste, garlic, and spices and stir to combine.
Stir in the browned ground turkey.
Then add the chopped onion, carrots, sweet potato, butternut squash, and apple. Lastly, stir in the black beans. Put the lid on.
Set crockpot to high and cook for 4-5 hours. Or set to medium or low and cook between 6-8 hours, depending on your schedule and crockpot heat level.
Before serving the chili, heat butter in a pan over medium/low heat. Add the sliced onions to the butter and stir occasionally until they are sweet and caramelized, about 20 minutes.
Ladle chili into bowls and top with caramelized onions and grated sharp cheddar cheese.
Note: This chili can also be made on the stove top instead of in a crockpot. Simply add all ingredients (except for the butter and 1/2 of the onion) to a large stockpot and bring to a boil. Then turn down the heat to medium and cook for at least 1 hour. The longer the flavors have to marry, the better!
