  2. While the beef is cooking, combine the kidney beans, black beans, cannellini beans, passata, passata with onion and garlic, chopped tomatoes and pumpkin puree in a large slow cooker. Season with pumpkin pie spice, chilli powder, cumin and salt. Stir in the minced beef mixture.
  3. Cook on Low until the chilli is hot, 1 to 2 hours.
