HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN CHILI

Step 1: Slice the sausages thinly or if you can remove them from the casing. Set aside along with the ground turkey.

Step 2: Add 2 tbsp olive oil in a large heavy-bottomed pan. Once the oil is hot, add the garlic and onion. Saute until onion is translucent.

Step 3: Add in the bell peppers and continue to cook for 5 minutes more. Remove from the pan and set aside.

Step 4: Drizzle additional 2 tbsp olive oil in the same pot. Add in the ground turkey and sausage and cook for about 10 minutes until browned. Add a dash of salt and pepper to taste.

Step 5: Bring back the veggies in the pan once the meat has browned. Stir in the diced tomatoes, pumpkin, beans, and all spices. Pour in the pumpkin beer followed by chicken broth and give it a good stir.

Step 6: Adjust the heat to low and simmer, stirring hardly, for about 1 1/2 to 2 hours. If needed, season with some more salt and pepper to taste.

Step 7: To serve, garnish with some grated cheddar cheese, sliced green onions, a dollop of sour cream. Enjoy!

NOTES:

Substitute the chicken broth with vegetable broth and omit the meat to make this vegetarian.
