Home Economics: Pumpkin chili… Fall comfort food!

imageIf you haven’t yet tried one of my soups or stews, you HAVE to make this one! It’s the best! I stumbled upon this recipe years ago when I started at a Crossfit gym and learned about the Paleo lifestyle. I originally found this pumpkin chili recipe on Feed Me Paleo.

imageAll the ingredients can easily be found at Trader Joe’s or your local grocery store. Of course, I had to modify the recipe a bit. I used 2 lbs of ground turkey instead of 3 lbs and added a bag of shredded carrots. I also had some extra zucchini noodles, or zoodles, so I threw them in as well. There is something about the combination of the chipotle salsa and the pumpkin flavor that tastes soooo good. This recipe is on constant rotation all fall. It’s great on its own, but it is even better over a baked sweet potato. Enjoy!

You can easily make a vegetarian version of this chili by swapping out the meat for beans and more veggies.
