    This has been my go-to chili recipe since I stumbled across it almost a year ago. Love it so much and it’s so thick and hearty with the added pumpkin puree. Thank you!

    1. Thank you for dropping by and letting me know! It’s one of my fave chili recipes as well!

  9. Tina,
    Pumpkin chili sounds great. Is it possible to substitute ground turkey for the beef. Hubby will absolutely not eat red meat.

    1. I haven’t tried that before but I definitely don’t see why not! Let me know how it turns out if you try it!
