Turkey Pumpkin Chili

This pumpkin chili is hearty, flavorful and perfect for soup season! So good with crusty bread for dipping and a side salad. If you still have leftover Thanksgiving turkey or even if you don’t chicken works great too, you’ve got to make my chili this week. It’s comfort food in a bowl. Don’t be afraid of the pumpkin, it makes the chili thick and perfectly flavorful. I promise it doesn’t taste like pumpkin pie 🙂

    Thank you for the great recipe, I made it for dinner tonight with our leftover turkey and it was delicious 🙂 A perfect dish for a chilly Portland night. Thanks again!

    Aloha!
    Thank you for the wonderful chili recipe – it was GREAT! My leftover turkey has spoiled – discovered in the middle of making this chili – thankfully I had a couple of cans of Costco chicken in the pantry – which I had been kicking myself for buying -who uses that! Now I do! This came out so good and my whole family liked it. I served it with a sweet cornbread (like cake!) muffins.

      April, I keep the canned chicken on hand because you can use it in ANY recipe that calls for chicken. It makes wonderful chicken salad, and it makes recipes really easy to have your chicken already “prepared”..

    Made this last night and it was delicious! Would have ended up tossing out most of our leftover turkey if I hadn’t found this. Thanks for the recipe 🙂

    I am seriously making this tomorrow night. I have all the ingredients on hand already, just need to soak the beans (mine are dried, not canned). Yummy!
