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.

 

Ingredients 

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

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!
