One of my favorite chilis to cook in my tiny house is Anytime Turkey Chili. It is easy and quick to make.

When I 1st started to learn to cook, chili was easy, some hamburger, kidney beans, onions, tomato ketchup, and tomato paste. Since then, I have graduated up just a little bit, and here is a recipe I found that I like to use. Notice the pumpkin and brown sugar added. It is like getting a Thanksgiving dinner in a bowl.
