Pumpkin Chili

The pumpkin flavor is very subtle but it gives the chili a rich color. Perfect for fall!

2 T canola oil
1/2 c. chopped onion
1 clove garlic, finely chopped
1 lb lean ground turkey or beef
2 (14.5 oz) cans diced tomatoes, undrained
1 (15 oz) can pumpkin
1 (15 oz) can tomato sauce
1 can (15.25 oz) kidney beans, drained
1/2 c. whole kernel corn
1 T chili powder

Add tomatoes with juice, pumpkin, tomato sauce, beans, corn, and chili powder. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover; cook, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes.
