Pumpkin Chili

I had made a pumpkin chili last year, that was amazing! But sadly it is lost in my pintrest archives. So I made this one, that was equally as good. So to make sure I don't lose this one, I need to document it. :)
I adapted my on flair from this basic recipe: Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin Chili

3 tablespoons olive oil    
1 pound ground turkey                        
1 small onion, chopped     
1 green bell pepper, seeded and chopped                                         
1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped     
2 cloves garlic, minced      
1 15-oz. can pure pumpkin   
2 15-oz. cans diced tomatoes, un drained     
2 cups low-sodium chicken broth          
1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder        
1 tablespoon cumin                 
1 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
1 15-oz. can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-oz. can white great northern beans, drained and rinsed
1 15-oz. can black beans, drained and rinsed
1. Warm oil in a large pot over medium heat. Cook turkey, stirring, until no pink remains, about 8 minutes. Add onion, bell pepper, jalapeño and garlic. 
2. Add tomatoes, pumpkin, broth, chili powder, cumin, pumpkin pie spice and 1/2 tsp. salt. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and stir in all beans. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until chili thickens slightly, about 30 minutes. Taste and season with salt and pepper.
3. Serve with sour cream, grated cheese, and green onion garnishes.
We like ours a little bit spicier, so going forward I may not deseed the whole pepper, or add another small one. Also you do not get an intense pumpkin flavor, we may also go with another 1/2 a can on pumpkin.
 And of course add any beer with meal!!
Cheers! Happy fall!
