Add ground turkey to skillet with veggies. Brown. (Turkey never really turns “brown” but will turn a lighter, grayish color).

While turkey is browning, line your crockpot with a crockpot liner (Seriously, the best invention! If you haven’t tried them, do!). Add tomatoes, pumpkin, garbanzo beans, 1 cup of water, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper to crock pot. Stir to combine.

The chili will be fully cooked in 30 minutes. If your crockpot has a warm function, you can leave your chili until you are ready for it. I started mine in the morning and ate it that evening.
