Black Bean Pumpkin Chili is so easy to make and its the perfect meal to warm your body and fill your belly.

 

 

I would have never thought to add pumpkin to chili before I lost 125 lbs. I was strictly a meat and potatoes girl and never an adventurous eater. However, once I started losing weight and eating healthier, my tastes became more daring.  I never looked back.

 

 

Pumpkin in Chili?

I know it sounds a little strange, but trust me the pumpkin flavor isn’t overwhelming, but it adds a rich, creaminess that is delicious. Plus you’ll have the bonus of added nutrition.
