Fabulous Fall Foods - Recipe 3

A wonderful fall chili is what's for dinner for this weeks Fabulous Fall Foods. This recipe came from last years October/November issue of Taste of Home. I do have to admit that the last time that I made this chili, it was better than this time. Don't know what I did differently but it was still good.
This recipe is for a slow cooker, so it's perfect to throw together in the morning and have a great dinner waiting for you when you get home. Makes the house smell delicious as well.

Black Bean 'n Pumpkin Chili

1 onion, chopped
1 yellow pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
2 tablespoons olive oil
3 cups chicken broth
2 15-oz. cans black beans
2-1/2 cups cubed cooked turkey
1 15-oz. can pumpkin
1 14-1/2-oz. can diced tomatoes (un-drained)
2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
2 teaspoons chili powder
1-1/2 teaspoons dried oregano
1-1/2 teaspoons cumin
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large skillet, saute the onion, yellow pepper and garlic in oil until tender. Transfer to a 5 quart slow cooker; Stir in the remaining ingredients.
Cover and cook on low for 4 to 5 hours or until heated through.

Serves 10


I serve with shredded cheese and homemade bread or cornbread, generally. Delicious~

I love that pumpkin!
I would love to try this. I'm not so sure my boys would eat it if they knew it had pumpkin in it.

The pumpkin just doesn't sound right. Mama used to make a chili that had cream of mushroom soup in it. It never tasted right to me. Guess I'm a traditionalist.

Raising my hand in wild excitement... begging for my testimony to be heard after making a pumpkin of myself at your meal. I'll do a magazine ad testimony...

"Best harvest meal ever. Autumn in every bite. Jack-o-lanterns every where should be scared - Monica S., Oregon".

Love the photos, Paula!

Mmm, it sounds delicious, Paula and I love the pumpkin with all it's warts. It would make a great jack-o-lantern.

Wishing you a wonderful week.
