Pumpkin Chili.

img_0268Happy November! Can you believe it..I honest can’t! October just flew by so fast and I’m not sure how i feel about it. I know I’m going to miss the pumpkin everything that’s for sure. ;)So with that being said,  yesterday being the last day of October we ate pumpkin.. and lots of it! We woke up that morning to have pumpkin Pancakes with a pumpkin latte, followed by a pumpkin yogurt parfait for an afternoon snack and if that wasn’t enough pumpkin, we had my a delicious Pumpkin Chili for dinner!


The Chili ended up being so easy and yummy that i wanted to share the recipe! I mean you don’t need October as an excuse to eat Chili. 🙂

I find this Chili is very similar to your typical Chili but has a tad bit of sweetness and intoxicating fall tastes and smells with that added cinnamon ! Pumpkin is also super high in vitamin A, it lowers blood pressure can boost your vision. It has been known to help people sleep better! Win. Win.



Beef or turkey

1 large onion, diced

1 green bell pepper, diced

2  cans kidney beans, drained ( I used a can of organic mix beans) 

1 can  diced tomatoes

1/2 can tomato sauce

2 cup canned pumpkin puree

1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice

1 tablespoon chili powder

1 tablespoon Garlic

1/2 teaspoon organic  sugar

In a large pot over medium heat, cook beef until brown; drain. Stir in onion and bell pepper and cook 5 minutes. Stir in beans, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes and pumpkin puree. Season with pumpkin pie spice, chili powder and Garlic, sugar.Simmer 1 hour. Top with Sourcream, Cheader cheese and Green Onions.

Hope you Enjoy as much as we did!
