Turkey Pumpkin Chili

Terrific chili for a chilly autumn day...

1 lb lean ground turkey
¾ cup chopped onions
½ cup chopped green bell peppers
2 cloves garlic, minced
Two 14.5oz. cans diced tomatoes, with liquid
15 oz can pure pumpkin pureé
15 oz can kidney beans, with liquid
15 oz can Great Northern beans, with liquid
15 oz can tomato sauce
4 oz can diced green chilies
2 tsp ground chili powder
1½ tsp ground cumin (or more to taste)
1 tsp salt
½ tsp ground black pepper
1½ tsp oregano
½ cup water

* Brown meat in large pot. Remove meat and place on paper towels to remove excess fat. Wipe any remaining fat from the pot and coat pot with cooking spray. (I didn't remove the meat. I just cooked the onions and green peppers with the turkey as it was browning....there wasn't much fat because I used lean turkey)
* Sauté onion, bell pepper and garlic; sauté until tender. Return meat to pot. Add all remaining ingredients and stir to combine. Simmer 30 minutes to 1 hour. If chili is too thick for you, add more water, and adjust seasonings as needed.
