My new favorite recipe
Pumpkin and Black Bean Chili
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 medium sweet yellow pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 3 cups Chicken Broth
  • 2 cans (15 oz ) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 2-1/2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 1 can (15 oz) solid-pack pumpkin
  • 1 can (14-1/2 oz) diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 2 teaspoons parsley flakes
  • 2 teaspoons chili powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons oregano
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


In a large skillet, saute the onion, yellow pepper in oil until tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Transfer to a slow cooker; stir in the remaining ingredients. Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours.

My mom gave me this recipe a few weeks ago and I've made it every week since then. The best thing about it - my whole family loves it. It does not taste "pumpkin-y" but it is delish! We like it with crushed tortilla chips on top. Enjoy!
