{RECIPE} Super Easy Pumpkin Turkey Chili

I love autumn….. and pumpkin turkey chili!

This is the time of year to get excited about the cooler weather, football season, beautiful changing leaves, and ALL THINGS PUMPKIN!

I was going through some old recipes recently and came across this beanless Pumpkin Turkey Chili recipe that I picked up at the grocery store a few years back. I never made it and honestly had forgotten about it.

I searched the pantry and refrigerator and had most of the ingredients. I changed the recipe slightly to fit my own preferences and had my grocery-shopping husband, David (yeah… he grocery shops! #winning), pick up the couple of items we needed. Last night, David threw this lovely recipe together (yep, he cooks too!), and we enjoyed this super quick and easy Pumpkin Turkey Chili.

It was surprisingly delicious! The pumpkin thickens it up nicely without the beans, so I really didn’t miss them at all. It gets 2 thumbs up from us!! It’s perfect for a lazy weekend day or for serving at a game day party. Enjoy!
