I love the fall. From the colors outside to the heart warming stews and soups. Even though I am from sunny So Cal, we do have the occasional tree that changes color on my block. And now that the temperature has dipped into the mid 60's it's time to break out a great fall recipe. Yes, the mid 60's is downright cold, just in case you were wondering. I realize that we are rapidly approaching winter and fall is almost over. But I've been a little busy lately, so I'm a bit behind.
This recipe is originally from Trader Joe's. It's just tweaked a little to take out the sugar and beans, etc. I never knew one could put sugar in chili. That just seems weird. All ingredients are available at Trader Joe's. If you don't have a TJ's in your area these ingredients are all available at your local natural grocery store.
So let's enjoy a big bowl of fall (ok... almost winter) Pumpkin Chili.
What you'll need:
3lbs. Ground turkey (or grassfed ground beef)
1 onion, diced
1 bell pepper, diced (I like red, yellow or orange)
1 14oz can of canned pumpkin (make sure it's just pumpkin)
1 tsp pepper
2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 jar chipotle salsa
1 box of Tomato and Roasted Red Pepper Soup
1 tsp cumin
What you do:
Cook the ground turkey, diced onion and pepper in a large pot until the meat is crumbly and no longer pink. Drain. Add the remaining ingredients, bring to a boil and then simmer for one hour.
That's it! Enjoy!
