Pumpkin Passion Stew

This hearty pumpkin stew with a bit of tropical warmth from the Passion Orange Guava juice!

Makes 5-7 Servings


3-4 chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
2 tbsp olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can pumpkin
4 cups fresh kale, chopped
1 14.5 oz can stewed tomatoes
1 each 15.0 oz can beans, drained and rinsed (such as Pinto, Black, Kidney, Great Northern, etc.–we suggest using two different types)
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups Sun Tropics® Passion Orange Guava 100% Juice
2 tsp chili powder
1 1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
3/4 tsp salt
1 pumpkin (Optional, for serving)


  1. In a large pot, heat olive oil over medium heat. Add the onions, garlic, and chicken. Sprinkle with half of each of the spices (keep remaining half to add to stew). Cook until onions are softened and chicken is cooked through.
  2. Combine remaining ingredients. Add onions, garlic, and chicken mixture.
  3. Heat on medium-high until stew begins to simmer. Stir, reduce heat to low, cover, and simmer. For soupier stew, simmer only for 3-5 minutes, and serve immediately. For thicker stew, allow stew to continue simmering until desired consistency is reached.
  4. If opting to serve in a pumpkin, cut around the top of the pumpkin and remove top, then hollow out pumpkin. To help keep stew hot longer, line the inside with aluminum foil.
