The words autumn and pumpkin are basically synonymous lately. It’s almost impossible to enjoy one without enjoying the other as well. From pumpkin spice lattes to pumpkin bread, pumpkin is in so many beloved fall recipes. But one recipe you may not have heard of yet is pumpkin chili. For chili purists, this may sound crazy, but trust us, this is a recipe you have to try. This incredible pumpkin chili deserves to be at the top of your list this season to experiment with in the kitchen and here’s why.
You may think the pumpkin ingredient could ruin this chili, but you would be wrong. The pumpkin flavor in this chili is not at all overpowering. In fact, it’s actually very subtle. The pumpkin is mainly there to give an extra dose of nutrition and thicken up the chili. This chili still has that classic savory flavor because of the fire-roasted tomatoes, garlic, onion, ground turkey or ground beef, and chicken or turkey broth.
If you’re a vegetarian, this is also an easy recipe to remove all meat elements out of. Simply take out the ground turkey or ground beef and the chicken broth or the turkey broth, and add in vegetable broth. You’ll still have a very delicious meal.
