Pumpkin Chili

Tonight I took my time getting home, as I was in no rush. As I drove home I thought up a fun new recipe. The best part was, I had everything in my pantry.

Corn, Black Beans, Red Kidney Beans, Hunt’s Tomato Sauce, and Paste (not pictured). I also picked three tomatoes  from our garden.

I used my three favorite chili spices: Chili Pepper, Red Pepper, and All Spice.

The secret ingredient a can of Organic Pumpkin

I dumped all of it in a large pot (drained the beans and corn) on top of 1lb of cooked lean turkey meat.

Love this meal Bobbi! I'm all about quick dinners, especially during the week!

I just made the exact same thing a few days ago. And trust me on this, it gets ever better as leftovers! :)

I also threw together a quick pumpkin cornbread, simply by adding some canned pumpkin to a cornbread mix. It's amazing what a little can of pumpkin can do! :)

I've never thought to combine pumpkin and chili. In any event, it looks great!

Lia said...

That sounds like the perfect meal for me. I love both CHILI and PUMPKIN! Thanks for posting this awesome recipe idea of yours!

In regard to your tummy aches: Have you tried food combining? I also get bad stomach aches if I don't combine properly. I can send you a link to someone who explains it better than I can, Choosing Raw blog. I hope it helps, but did the steaming help you?
