I made this for our church Fall Festival and its a good thing I took some out for lunch the next day cause there was NONE left at the end of the night. It was delicious and the pumpkin gave it such a rich flavor. I also added a bit of cinnamon which really complimented the rest of the flavors.

I made this for a family Christmas gathering and although everyone was a little hesitant, once they tried it they loved it. I used ground turkey instead of chopped cooked turkey and didn't have cream sherry to add. I did add a couple dashes of cayenne pepper (I love a little heat!). Will definitely be making this again. Thanks!

Used 2 celery ribs instead of the bell pepper, leftover Butternut Squash Tian (66047), mashed, and 2 cups chicken in box and 1.5 cups Rescued Turkey Stock (24576), no sherry. All dark meat turkey. 1 tsp cumin, 2 tsp chili powder for wimpy DH.
