Pumpkin Chilli With Cinnamon

This recipe was a bit of an accident in that I mistook the chili powder for cinnamon one day and just didn't have time to make something new before dinner time (Don't judge. It's has happened or will happen to us all) I was surprised to find that the cinnamon worked really well with the other spices and that the pumpkin lowered the acidity of the tomatoes quite a bit. This became a favorite for Roo who typically wont eat more than a bite of traditional chili. 

It became a favorite of mine since its a ready in minutes one pot wonder that is packed full of veggies and protein.


-1 lb ground turkey
-16 oz canned Cannellini /White beans (not drained)
-16 oz  canned stewed tomatoes
-12 oz pureed pumpkin
-1 cup diced yellow onion
-1 1/2 cup corn
-1 green bell pepper diced
-1 tbsp olive oil
-Garlic salt (to taste)
-Cinnamon (to taste)
-Ground pepper (to taste)

Cooking Instructions
