Crock Pot Black Bean & Pumpkin Chili

Hello out there!

Happy 2015 to you all! One of my goals for the year is to do at least 1 post per month. This may not sound like much, but I didn’t even do that well last year. Oops. I’m pretty confident 2015 will be a less hectic year for me, so expect more recipes!

M and I started off the new year right with this awesome, unique chili recipe for dinner. It combines many of my favorite spices (and of course pumpkin) with black beans and onions. Hopefully you will enjoy it as much as we did!
