Super Easy Pumpkin Chili

Easy Pumpkin Chili

Every year on Halloween we have some kind of chili for dinner.  I usually use mostly red, brown, and black beans, with turkey meat, but this year I wanted to make it a festive orange color.  This recipe uses only white beans and chicken, so the orange from the pumpkin really pops!  Chives criss crossed over the top, like a spider web, or cucumber cutouts to make a pumpkin face are the perfect finishing touch for this Super Easy Pumpkin Chili!

It’s been a while since I’ve shared a recipe with beans in it, so let’s review some of the reasons why beans really should be included in your diet!  First, they are really high in vitamins and minerals, as well as protein and fiber.  They have resistant starch in them, which passes through your intestines, without being absorbed, and it feeds the beneficial bacteria that reside in there.  Beans really fill you up, but you don’t not all of the calories actually get past your digestive system, so they are a great food for those trying to lose weight.  Combined with the pumpkin, onions, and chicken in this chili, you really do get a complete meal in one dish!  Of course, I like to add some gluten free cornbread to round it off a bit.  I’ll share some ideas on how to modify packaged GF corn bread mix to make it lower carb later this week!
