Turkey Pumpkin Chili
Cooking and baking with pumpkin in the Fall is something I love to do every year. I am always looking for delicious recipes to incorporate it into when I plan my meals for the week. Pumpkin is highly nutritious too since its loaded with fiber, iron, zinc, and vitamins A, C, and E. This past week I found a great recipe on the Whole Foods website for Turkey Pumpkin Chili. This is a great dinner for a cool Autumn night and healthy too. What recipes do you like that have this super food in them?
