Pumpkin "Turkey" Chili with video

Oh I love Pumpkin "Turkey" Chili!

It's the perfect fall dish for this time of year and in my opinion it's super healthy!

In my Pumpkin "Turkey" Chili I used pea protein instead of turkey because I'm vegetarian. My mom and I have been making this recipe for years.  

I would like to suggest a few things before you jump into cooking the chili! is where my mom and I found this recipe and it's my favorite site for a myriad of reasons. One of those reasons is that you can change the amount of servings and it'll show you the exact amount of each ingredient you need. This takes the guess work out for you. Since I've made this recipe so much, I just eye ball it and make a bunch!

Another reason is that a lot of the recipes have very few ingredients and I've found that those are the ones that turn out the best! Less is more not only applies to the Bounty quicker picker upper, but here too.

I also like to add or take away ingredients and try to make it my own. I have yet to try this with this recipe because I love the simplicity of it, but I would suggest adding one or all of these ingredients; corn, beans, chips, and salsa. I've recently found warm salsa and let me tell you, it's as good as cold salsa! If you live in the Denver metro area or any of the states that has Fuzzy's Taco, you must go!  All I'll say is they make the best warm salsa and veggie tacos!

Next I would suggest prepping your food. Sometimes I find cooking or baking stressful and it's because I don't prepare myself. I taught myself to cut everything up, open cans and containers before I start cooking. Reason being; when I start the actual cooking part I like to keep an eye on everything I put in and not have to focus on chopping and cooking at the same time. Prepping myself makes cooking less stressful and way more fun!

Last suggestion is to make a bunch so that you have plenty of leftovers. Trust me you'll want them! For yourself and so you can share it with your friends and family!

Video time!

I love watching cooking videos because it relaxes me, specifically ones that show the cooking process. I thought it would be a great idea for me to put a little video together and make Travis be my guinea pig. Mwuahhh (that's my evil laugh) I make it every year and I think this year was the best yet!

Thanks for stopping by and make sure to comment and let me know if you make this and if you add or take anything out.  Also if you have any fall recipes you like making, please share it here or on any of the Tiny House Couple's social media! I love seeing what other people like to cook or bake this time of year.

Bon Appetit!
