This recipe came about because I was craving a "different" kind of chili. Pumpkin immediately came to my mind. The smell that filled my house while simmering was amazing! This chili was thick and creamy, not much color but delicious!

Sweet and hot. Used ground turkey and added 1/3c Sofrito for depth and zing. If this recipe piques your interest, give it a try. Great with fresh pumpkin, alkaloidqueen.
