Chilly autumn days call for warm comfort food. Fill your slow cooker with favorite fall ingredients to make hearty dinners like pumpkin chili and pork roast, simple sides featuring sweet potatoes and squash, seasonal desserts for stuffed apples and poached pears and more slow cooker recipes.
My family is crazy about this slow cooker chili because it uses ingredients you don't usually find in chili. Believe it or not, I discovered that pumpkin is what makes the dish so special. Cook up a big batch and freeze some for later; it tastes even better reheated. —Deborah Vliet, Holland, Michigan
