Savory Pumpkin Chili with Ground Turkey

Pumpkin Chili

 

Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin puree is mixed with tender ground turkey and warm spices to make this pumpkin chili an easy twist on a fall classic!

Celebrate the fall season by incorporating pumpkin chili into your weekly meal plan.  This is a super simple recipe that you can whip up in 25 minutes on the stove after work, or even make in the crockpot and let it simmer away all day.    If you plan to make it in the crockpot, I suggest browning the turkey first, then adding all the ingredients to the crockpot. 

The combination of the sweet and savory is incredible in this chili. It even has a jalapeno for a little kick, but it’s not spicy.   I’ve used pumpkin and I’ve also used cubed butternut squash in chili before and its a huge hit in my house!  

You can easily omit the meat and make this vegetarian with the pumpkin and beans and it’s amazing!  It’s the perfect recipe to prepare when you don’t have a ton of time, but want a delicious dinner.

Take advantage of the sales on ground turkey, beans, and canned pumpkin at Safeway to make this pumpkin chili recipe this week!
