I pretty much think that pumpkin can be added to just about anything. I find myself cooking things with pumpkin a lot lately. It's healthy, low calorie and delicious, so why not!
I love how the pumpkin thickened this chili up. You couldn't taste the pumpkin directly but it made a wonderfully tasty thick chili that I will for sure make again!

Pumpkin Chili Recipe
Adapted from Kalyn's Kitchen
1 lb. ground turkey
1 large onion, diced
1 red pepper, diced
1 tbsp. garlic powder (or 3 cloves pressed garlic)
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. Ancho chili powder
2 tsp. dried coriander
1 tsp. dried oregano
2 tsp. seasoned salt
1 tsp. salt
Ground black pepper
2 - 4 oz. cans green chile peppers
3 beef bouillon cubes & about 1 cup water (or beef stock)
1 can (15 oz) red kidney beans, drained and rinsed
2 cans (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
1 can pumpkin puree (15 oz.)
2 cans diced tomatoes, undrained
Brown ground turkey. Cook turkey with onions and peppers. Add spices and cook for a few minutes. Put mixture in crock pot. Add beans, beef bouillon, pumpkin, diced tomatoes, and green chiles to crock pot. I used about a cup of water with this. I just rinsed out the cans as I was adding them to the pot. I like it pretty thick so I didn't add much. Cook on low for about 7 - 9 hours or high for 4 - 6 hours.
