Pumpkin Chili

I know this recipe doesn’t involve sugar, flour, or butter, but per the requests of many, I thought I would post it anyway.  So, without further ado here is my pumpkin chili recipe…

2 tbsp. vegetable oil
1 green bell pepper, chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
1 yellow bell pepper, chopped
1 large onion, diced
1 garlic clove, minced
2 lbs. ground beef or turkey
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 (14 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (14 oz) can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 bottle dark beer (optional)
1/4 cup chili powder
3 tbsp. pumpkin pie spice
2 tbsp. black pepper
Healthy dose of salt (to taste)

Over medium heat, saute peppers, onion, and garlic in oil until translucent.  Transfer to crock pot and in the same pan, brown the meat.  Drain meat and transfer to the crock pot.  Add tomato, pumpkin, beans, beer, and seasonings.  Mix well and let simmer on low for 4-6 hours, stirring occasionally.

This recipe is great because it’s tasty, cost effective, and good for you too!  I hope you like this recipe as much as I do! 🙂
