This slow cooker/ crock pot recipe is a unique twist on the classic chili flavors. The pumpkin adds a subtle flavor and smooth texture that pairs perfectly with the spicy chipotle sauce. A great dish for your next Halloween party!
1 package Hurst's Pinto HamBeens®
8 cups chicken broth (64 oz.)
1 smoked ham hock (can substitute 1/2 lb. of smoked sausage)
1 large onion, diced
1 (7 oz.) can chipotles in adobo sauce (these can be found in Hispanic section of grocery)
1 (15 oz.) can of pumpkin (just pure pumpkin, NOT pie mix)
2 tbsp. Chili powder
1 tsp. all-spice
Salt and pepper to taste
The chipotles and adobo sauce are VERY spicy right out of the can, but become much more mild as they cook with the beans.
Serve with tortilla chips and shredded cheese.
Every time you lift the lid it will add to the overall cooking time... be patient!
