Pumpkin Turkey Chili

A seasonal treat for the autumn season when pumpkin is on your mind!  My niece, who is a nutritionist, posted a picture of the dish on her Instagram and I quickly asked for the recipe.

The flavor is slightly more sweet than a traditional chili.  The pumpkin also adds a creaminess that works beautifully with the turkey which sometimes cab be dry…and of course the pumpkin adds a lovely color.
