Thick, hearty Pumpkin Chili is a delicous fall twist on the classic favorite, perfect for game day, by the bowl, on hot dogs or atop a bed of fries.
Whip up a batch of this hearty Pumpkin Chili, it’is loaded with ground meat, kidney beans, tomatoes; made extra thick with the addition of pumpkin puree. I like mine topped with a generous helping of shredded white cheddar cheese, Cabot White Oak Cheddar is my personal favorite. Served with crackers, cornbread or a big scoop of sour cream, this Pumpkin Chili is sure to quickly become a favorite dish.
