25 Pumpkin Recipes to Try this Fall – So, if like me, you have a pumpkin hoarding problem you now have a very good excuse. I’ve just shared my favorite Pumpkin Recipes for you to try this fall.
I thought that I should probably confess a little something. Pumpkin recipes get me a little excited.
Whenever I first spot a display of canned pumpkin puree in the grocery store I know it must be time to start preparing for fall baking. And fall baking means, getting ready to start making some of our family’s favorite pumpkin recipes.
That excitement often leads me to do something I never before thought that I was capable of doing: HOARDING.
I frequently find myself clearing the entire shelf of canned pumpkin puree with great plans to get down to business as soon as we return home from our errands.
In the past, Logan has woken me from my daydreams of pumpkin recipes and a fully stocked pantry with an innocent question: “Mom, isn’t that enough?”
Feeling a little embarrassed as I realized that I had repeatedly been adding can after can to my cart I quickly responded to him.
“Well, you and Madeline really like pumpkin muffins and pumpkin cinnamon rolls.”
Hopefully that would steer any curious onlookers away and back to their own shopping.
Honestly though, I have lots of recipes I want to try. I’ve been pinning like mad all the delicious pumpkin treats and savory dishes that have struck my fancy, along with a few family favorites for good measure.
So, if like me, you have a pumpkin hoarding problem you now have a very good excuse.

Pumpkin Black Bean Turkey Chili is a great fall chili recipe with tons of flavor!
This Pumpkin Black Bean Turkey Chili is a thick, rich chili that is a little less on the tomato-y side.
It has the bonus of being loaded with extra vegetables in the form of pureed pumpkinin addition to all the flavor that comes with the ground turkey, garlic, black beans, poblanos, and chili powders.
The best chili recipes are all about layered flavors – from the carefully sautéed onions and garlic, the blend of chili seasonings, the browned meat, the tender beans, to the rich and thick tomato base.
