Pumpkin Chili


  • 1 pound Extra lean ground beef or turkey
  • 1 small Onion, chopped
  • 1 can Diced tomatoes (14-1/2 ounces)
  • 1 can Kidney beans, undrained (16 ounces)
  • 1 packet Mild chili seasoning mix (1.25 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup Canned pumpkin
  • 1 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp Brown sugar, packed


  • In a large saucepan over medium-high heat, brown meat until no longer pink. Add onions and continue cooking until softened, 2-3 minutes. Drain juices.
