It’s October! The best month of the year if you ask me! I have to admit I’m really glad September is over. It was a rough month in our house with everybody getting sick twice and my eye injuries.
The weather is cooling off, the Halloween decorations are up and the Halloween movies have started! This time of year makes me crave chili. There’s nothing better than cozying up on the sofa in comfy pajamas, a good show or movie, and a warm hearty bowl of chili!
And this chili is so perfect for fall because it’s made with pumpkin! If you think it seems weird to add pumpkin to chili, let me assure you, it’s so so good. The flavor blends in so well with the rest of the chili. And even better, this chili is packed full of nutritious goodness! Lean ground chicken, beans for protein and fiber, and the pumpkin adds a good dose of Vitamin A.
If you prefer to use ground turkey or ground beef, you can swap out the ground chicken. You can also switch up the beans if you want. I like to top mine with shredded cheddar and green onions. Diced avocado or sour cream would also be delish!
Serve this chili with some warm cornbread and it’s literally the ultimate fall dinner!
