Easy Fall Recipe: Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Nothing screams fall more than enjoying some chili while watching Sunday football. I was on the hunt for a good healthy turkey chili recipe when I stumbled upon a Trader Joe’s Recipe that was simple and easy. I tweaked it slightly to sub out a few ingredients but the result was perfect and I am really excited to share it with you. All the ingredients can be found at your local Trader Joe’s or any other supermarket. Best part is that no crock pot needed – just about 30-40 minutes of your time!
