Pumpkin Chili

A family pumpkin carving party at work many years ago introduced our family to pumpkin chili. Although our family is not a fan of chili we loved it and found a way to make it our own by removing a few ingredients and altering some measurements. Best time of year for pumpkin chili is during holiday potlucks in the cold weather months or even a local chili cook off.
