THREE BEAN PUMPKIN CHILI
1 Tablespoon olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 large onion, chopped
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 pound ground turkey (to make this vegetarian, omit the turkey and add another can of beans).
1 15-oz. can black beans
1 15-oz. can kidney beans
1 15-oz. can white beans (I used cannellini).
1 29-oz. can crushed tomatoes
1 15-oz. can fire-roasted tomatoes
1 15-oz. can pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1 Tablespoon chili powder
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- In large pot, over medium heat, warm olive oil. Add garlic, onion, and peppers, and saute until onions start to turn translucent. Add meat, breaking it up with fork, and cook until no pink remains. Add remaining ingredients and heat until mixture starts to bubble. Reduce heat to low. Cook 1 to 2 hours to blend seasonings.
- Serves 8 to 10.
This is almost a standard recipe from Muncho Mom for this time of year.
