  • Cooking Time:

    8–9 hours on Low or 6 hours on High
  • Servings:



1 pack­age Pin­to Ham­Beens®
8 c. chick­en broth (64 oz.)
1 smoked ham hock (can sub­sti­tute 1/2 lb. of smoked sausage)
1 onion, large, diced
7 oz. chipotle’s in adobo sauce, canned (these can be found in His­pan­ic sec­tion of gro­cery)
15 oz. can of pump­kin (just pure pump­kin, NOT pie mix)
2 T. Chili pow­der

My friends at Hurst Beans sent me this recipe for Pump­kin Pin­to Chili and it sounds deli­cious!  This Hal­loween, I’m in a new neigh­bor­hood where every­one serves food and good­ies to the adults who take the kids trick-or-treat­ing.  This is on my Hal­loween menu! (dou­ble batch)  I think pump­kin is great in just about anything.…what do you think?

  1. In a colan­der or sieve, rinse and sort through the pin­to beans. Check for any unwant­ed debris and dis­card.
  2. Pour rinsed beans into a 4–6 quart slow cook­er. Add ham hock, diced onion, & chick­en stock.
  3. Strain the adobo sauce from the can of chipotle’s and add all of the sauce into the pot.
  4. Depend­ing on the lev­el of “spice” you desire, chop indi­vid­ual chipotle’s and add into the pot.
  5. Cov­er. Cook on Low for 8 — 9 hours or on High for 6 hours.
  6. After the beans are ten­der, remove the bone from the ham hock and add the ham back into the pot.
  7. Stir in the pump­kin, chili pow­der, & all-spice. Cook on low for addi­tion­al 30 min­utes, then keep warm until ready to serve.
