Aug 31, 2012 07:22PM ● By Cate Reynolds



½ pound ground beef
½ pound turkey sausage
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 medium onion, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
28 ounces diced tomatoes
½ cup pumpkin puree
1 bottle pumpkin beer
¼ teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon cumin
1 tablespoon paprika
1 teaspoon nutmeg
1 can black beans


Sauté the onions and garlic in the olive oil in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add the beef and sausage to brown.

Add the tomatoes, pumpkin puree, beer, and spices to the pot. Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer until the chili has reached desired thickness, or about 15 minutes with the lid off. Add a can of black beans and simmer until the beans are heated through. Serve immediately.
