There is nothing better then Chilli and when I seen this recipe, a few years ago, for Turkey Pumpkin White Bean Chilli over on Skinny Taste. I knew I had to try it.

There is just something about eating chilli in the colder months of the year. If you’re anything like me, I easily get bored of eating the same flavours too often. I love that this turkey pumpkin white bean chilli recipe has all the great chilli staples with a few twists, just to keep things different.

This recipe is easy enough to throw together at the last minute, but its also great in a slow cooker/Instant Pot. Pair this with my favourite Buttermilk Drop Biscuits and you have the perfect fall meal.
