This is pretty much a family favorite. I made it tonight – ’twas as good as ever.

Black Bean Pumpkin Chili

1 medium onion, chopped

1 medium yellow sweet pepper, chopped

3 cloves garlic, minced

2 T. oil

3 cups chicken broth

2 cans (15 oz. each) black beans, rinsed and drained

1 can (14.5 oz.) diced tomatoes

1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin

2 1/2 cups chopped turkey or ground beef/beef sausage

1/2 tsp. salt

Pepper to taste

2 tsp. chili powder

1 1/2 tsp. oregano

1 1/2 tsp. cumin

Saute the onions, pepper, and garlic in olive oil until tender. Add remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil. Simmer over low heat until heated through and ready to serve. Yield: 8-10 servings

Don’t be scared of the pumpkin…you can’t even taste it!
