Delicious Pumpkin Chicken Chili Recipe

Delicious pumpkin chili never goes out of style specially during fall and winter months. They make the best fall meals. Here’s an absolutely delicious pumpkin chili recipe I’d like to share.
Originally, I use cream cheese for that sour and creamy texture but since I have trouble digesting dairy (do you too?), I figured out a way to enjoy a creamy pumpkin soup minus the cream cheese using nutritional yeast and coconut oil. The flavor is slightly different but it still tastes absolutely delightful!
