Thanks for stopping by for Meatless Monday today. Fall is in the air and so is all things pumpkin. I love to use it in unconventional ways and spice it up a bit. I know you are going to love this Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Chili as much as I did.
Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Chili
Chili is the perfect fall food isn’t it? I used a package of Beyond Meat (vegan meat substitute) for today’s recipe. You can use any meat substitute or if you are not a vegan, ground turkey or beef will work just as well. Pick your fave protein and get cooking!
Not only is this Vegan Pumpkin Chipotle Chili full of protein and flavor, it’s super easy to make on a weeknight. But, special enough for a weekend as well. It freezes well or keeps in the fridge for 5 days. I like to portion mine out and freeze it so I can easily pull out when I have a craving for a warm bowl of goodness.
What gives this Pumpkin Chipotle Chili that smokey chipotle taste? I’ve added a can of chipotles in Adobo sauce (I use Goya) found right at your regular grocer. Simply dice them up and add them in for that smokey and slightly spicy kick. I also added in a cup of pumpkin puree. Make sure you get the 100% pumpkin. It’s full vitamin C and Beta Carotene. The flavors of the chipotle and pumpkin are a killer taste combination.
You can easily adjust the spiciness level by adding more or less chili powder and paprika. The spicier the better for me!
