Ingredients

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 pasilla chili pepper diced
  • 1 large red bell pepper diced
  • 1 medium red onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 lb ground turkey chicken or extra lean ground beef work too
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp onion powder
  • 4 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp ground black pepper
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 2/3 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato paste
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can petite diced tomatoes I used fire-roasted
  • 4 cup low-sodium chicken stock or vegetable broth
  • 1 (15 oz) can great northern beans
  • 1 (15 oz) can black beans
  • 1/2 (15 oz) can dark red kidney beans

Instructions

  • In a large pot set over medium-high heat, add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the peppers and onion. Cook until tender, about 3-4 minutes, then add the garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.
  • Add the ground turkey and cook for 4-5 minutes, then add the garlic powder, onion powder, chili powder, paprika, cayenne pepper, cumin, coriander, salt, pepper, and oregano. Stir and cook for 2 minutes or until fragrant.
  • Add the pumpkin puree, tomato sauce, tomato paste and diced tomatoes. Cook for 2 minutes, stirring frequently to prevent sauce from burning.
  • Pour in the chicken stock, then add the beans. Bring to a simmer, then reduce heat to medium-low and allow to cook for 1 hour.
  • Remove from heat and serve as-is or with desired toppings.

Notes

-This has great flavor without being spicy. Try adding 1 diced jalapeño to really heat things up!
