I was very concerned with the pumpkin ingredient but the chili came out surprisingly good and my family loved it. I did end up modifying based on what I had at home. I didn't use the ingredients I didn't have on hand (vegetable oil, bell pepper, tomato sauce, diced tomatoes, green chiles, corn, cumin). I ended up with more turkey because I added one entire package of Jennie-O turkey (1.25 lbs). I heated olive oil and then added garlic and onions. After adding the turkey, I seasoned with 1 tsp salt and crushed red pepper; 1 TB dried oregano, basil, and chili powder. I didn't need to drain once the turkey was browned. I then added 2 cans stewed italian tomatoes, pumpkin, 2 cans of beans (undrained), 1/2-3/4 cup salsa, 1/2 cup beer. Instead of 30 minutes, I actually cooked it for about 1 1/2 hours. I would have cooked it longer if I had the time.
