Turkey Pumpkin Chili

I decided at the last minute to try to throw this together before I left for work so that it could brew in the crockpot all day and be ready for us this evening.  It didn't take too long and turned out pretty tasty as well.  I'm not a huge chili fan to begin with because I don't like spicy foods, but I limited the spice on this version and it was very mild.  The kids, Rich, and Mike all seemed to enjoy it paired with some long grain rice.

High protein, high fiber, what else could you want? And, I suppose it is sort of festive with the pumpkin added in for Halloween!
