Sweet, Savory and Spicy Chili

2 lb ground beef (sometimes I use less)
1/4 c chopped onion
1/4 c diced green bell pepper
1 T crushed red pepper
2 T hot sauce
2 cans (28 oz) diced tomatoes (chili style) (I use one chili style & one regular)
1 can kidney beans
1 can black beans
1 lg can tomato sauce (probably could use broth here if you prefer a clearer chili)
1 1/2 T chili powder
1 t salt
Dash of pepper
1 c water
1 can (15 oz) pumpkin (*not* pumpkin pie filling)
3 T brown sugar
1 1/2 t cinnamon
2 c shredded cheese

Saute beef & onion & peppers.  Pile everything in the slow cooker, except cheese.  Cook on low overnight or while at work.  About 20 mins before serving, stir in cheese (I don't... I just let everyone add at the table.).  12 servings.
