This pumpkin spice turkey chili is savory, hearty, healthy and both classic and unique. It's also bean-free and features both pumpkin and butternut squash. It's a great recipe to have on repeat in the fall!
Heat avocado oil in a large pot over medium heat. Then, add the onion and garlic, and sauté a couple minutes. Next, add the ground turkey and season to taste with sea salt and black pepper. Continue to cook 7-10 minutes, until ground turkey is browned.
Once meat is browned, add the butternut squash, pumpkin puree, chopped tomatoes, tomato paste, raw honey and broth. Stir well and then add the chili powder, cumin, pumpkin pie spice, turmeric, and more sea salt and black pepper. Bring to a simmer over medium-low heat and cook for 15 minutes or until squash is tender.
Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Then, stir in the spinach and cook another 2-3 minutes. Serve with fresh cilantro and avocado slices, if desired.
