With fall in the air, I can’t help but crave hot, hearty dishes like chili. If you haven’t tried my turkey corn chili yet, you have to. It’s soooo good. But I wanted something a little different… and this sweet/spicy pumpkin chili recipe is it! If you’ve never tried pumpkin chili before, you’ll love the combination.

Ingredients
  

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 lb ground turkey
  • 1 c. onion chopped
  • 1 c. green pepper diced
  • 1 clove of garlic minced
  • 1 14-1/2 oz can diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1 15 oz can of white beans, drained
  • 1 ½ tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp pepper divided
  • 1 tsp salt divided
  • ¼ c. water

Instructions
 

  • Heat oil in a pan over medium heat. Add onion, turkey and green peppers, ½ teaspoon of salt and ½ teaspoon of black pepper. Cook until turkey is browned and onions are tender. Add in garlic, stir together.
  • Transfer turkey mixture into crockpot and add in the rest of the ingredients, stir together.
  • Cook on low for 4 to 5 hours.

Once it’s done, serve with a big dollop of sour cream and some shredded cheese. And if you’re like me, you’ll want a big hunk of cornbread to pair with the pumpkin chili as well.
