Crock-Pot Pumpkin Chili

I don't know where 2018 has gone but at least in San Francisco it is officially fall and with it comes cold nights, foggy mornings and pumpkins everywhere.

I have a go to crock-pot chili recipe I usually turn to this time of year but decided to switch it up with a Pumpkin Chili recipe! It has the typical chili flavors but pumpkin and cinnamon add a fall twist!
