White Bean Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Tuesday, November 19, 2013

From our skinny table to yours...

Today we are combining 2 of our favorite Fall loves... pumpkin and chili!  You may have noticed we have a slight obsession with pumpkin, but it's totally under control!  We love indulging in chili this time of year, but don't you worry, there is nothing you need to feel guilty about here!

We love how easy chili is to throw together.  It's a super quick and healthy one pot wonder!  Simply start by sautéing yellow pepper, jalapeno, onions and garlic with lean organic ground turkey.  We added in cumin and chili powder for an extra dash of flavor.  We then added white beans, corn, crushed tomatoes, chicken stock and pumpkin puree! 
The more you buy organic, the better!
Our final touch was a dash of cinnamon just to brighten up the pumpkin flavor and BOY was this good!
YUM, there is nothing like a big bowl of comforting chili on a cold fall night!  Hope you enjoy!
