Clean Eating Black Bean Pumpkin Chili

I have been battling a cough and stuffed nose for a good four weeks now and I finally went to the doctor and got medicine( I am not a fan of going to the doctor so when I do go, I expect results and still not getting results) Anywhoo, I trudge on and even though I can't taste anything with a plugged nose, my family must still eat.  I will try this again when I have taste buds again.  All 3 boys enjoyed this, so it must of tasted pretty good.  Very easy and if you don't have turkey meat, use lean ground beef!!!
