Slow Cooker Pumpkin Beer Chili

I’ve made this recipe about seventeen times over the last few weeks to make sure I got the beer ratio just right for you.  It was such a tough job, you know, eating all this delicious chili.  I even made it without beer just to see how it might change the flavor, and while I must say the beer truly takes it over the top, the without version is quite delicious in it’s own right.

A couple of other items that make this recipe special and maybe just a little different?  And certainly perfect for fall?  The addition of butternut squash and fire-roasted tomatoes.  Does anything taste more fall-ish than butternut squash? (and don’t forget the pumpkin beer!).  And that fire-roasted flavor of the tomatoes just reminds you of cooking food over a campfire on a crisp fall day! Okay, I never really do that, but it’s what I imagine it would be.

  1. there’s a lot to like about this recipe! Now be truthful, was that version w/o the beer perhaps because too much was enjoy while cooking? 🙂 I agree about butternut squash being the taste of fall! Interesting, I like pork a lot but haven’t tried making chili with it.

  2. I can imagine how tough it was to eat all this chili 🙂 But yes, it makes this recipe quite versatile if you can take out the beer component and still have a decent flavor. Well done!
