I am so excited to re-share my friend Michelle’s Pumpkin Chili Recipe. It may inspire you to whip up something fun for Halloween!! It is and odd combo, I know, but really yummy & even the pickiest of eaters will have no idea about the pumpkin!! Give it a try!!

Pumpkin Chili

1 T. canola oil

1 onion, diced

1 clove garlic, minced

1  lb. lean ground beef or turkey (I used turkey)

1  can cannellini beans, drained & rinsed

1 can black beans, drained & rinsed

28 oz. chopped tomatoes, with the juice

1 can  pumpkin (NOT pumpkin pie filling!!)

7 oz. chopped green chilies

1 can chicken broth

1 T. cumin

1 T. chili powder

1 t. sugar

1 t. salt

1/2 t. cinnamon

1 t. unsweetened cocoa

Sauté garlic and onion in oil. Add meat and brown. Add remaining ingredients, cover; simmer for approx. an hour- stirring occasionally. This also works great in the crock pot. Enjoy!!
