Pumpkin Chili

Chili is an all time fall favorite! With all the classic flavors of traditional chili, this pumpkin chili recipe creates a slightly smoother consistency with just a hint of sweetness!

Try to use all organic ingredients if possible, my favorite organic pumpkin is linked here.

I adore this pumpkin serving bowl!! I could not believe it was only $15! It looks exactly like my Pottery Barn serving dishes and is literally a fraction of the price.

Notes

This recipe is good served immediately but I think it’s even better the next day as leftovers so the flavors have time to “get familiar” overnight.  This is a great recipe to make in advance or keep in the freezer!
