Ras el Hanout Pumpkin Turkey Chili

Updated: Nov 4

It's Thanksgiving month, which means we are all getting ready to eat more than our fair share of comfort food, especially this year, when comfort has seemed so hard to come by. But it's also likely that our Thanksgiving dinner tables will have far fewer family members around them this year due to restrictions on travel and gatherings. So if you're still planning on roasting a whole turkey, chances are you'll have FAR more leftover turkey this year than in years past. I love a good turkey sandwich as much as the next person, but it's always nice to have some other ideas for when that sandwich just won't do. Enter my Ras el Hanout Pumpkin Turkey Chili.

I adapted this recipe from one over at Lodge, although I use leftover roasted turkey (instead of turkey sausage) and substitute my Ras el Hanout Spice Blend (get yours here) in place of the mix of individual spices in the Lodge recipe.
