Bariatric Surgery patients can never have too many chili recipes. It’s such a wonderful way to get good protein in but while enjoying so many flavor profiles!

This chili is yet another big flavor change bringing in the Fall flavor of Pumpkin. The canned pumpkin itself doesn’t have much flavor so use it minimally to keep carbohydrates down, however, a small amount gives a fun and creamy texture. The real flavor comes in with the Pumpkin Pie Spice and the Chili Powder.

It’s certainly a different style of chili but in our house…it’s a hit! My personal preference is to add a little reduced fat crumbled feta cheese on top.

  1. Sounded very interesting, but made last week and don’t think it was a keeper. Think ill stick to 20 minute chilli with ranch and taco seasoning…..very flavorful. Thanks Steph for all your recipes.

  2. I made this tonight. Wound up with 7 servings for the week and loved it. I have had a lot of issues with food since surgery and this recipe gave me hope for actual food. Thank you so much for the recipe. I will be trying more.
