Autumn Pumpkin Chili
1 medium onion, chopped
1 clove garlic, minced
1 lb. ground turkey
1 can (15 oz.) solid-pack pumpkin
1 can (14 1/2 oz.) diced tomatoes, undrained
4 1/2 tsp. chili powder (I would increase this)
1/4 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. salt (I increased this to 1/2)
1 can red kidney beans (my addition since the original recipe had no beans in it)
Saute onion and green and yellow peppers in oil in a large skillet until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Crumble turkey into skillet. Cook over medium heat until meat is no longer pink.
Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. Stir in the pumpkin, tomatoes, chili powder, beans, pepper and salt. Cover and cook on low for 7 - 9 hours. Serve with toppings of your choice.
