Turkey Pumpkin Chili Recipe

Recipe - Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Turkey and pumpkin…This recipe brings them together for a hearty, seasonal one-pot meal. Besides adding a sweet nutty flavor to dishes, pumpkin is a ready source of vitamin A, which boosts the nutrition content of this offbeat chili. Garnish each portion with a dollop of sour cream (or Greek yogurt) and chopped cilantro or scallions.
