Pumpkin Chili (See Jane Simmer)


Although Christmas decorations may be up in stores already, it's still harvest time which means pumpkin until Thanksgiving!  I found this recipe through one of my favorite websites, allrecipes.com, and once I saw the words 'pumpkin' and 'chili' side by side, knew I had to try it.  I improvised a bit and added a few things, including corn, black beans, cumin, cayenne pepper, paprika, jalapenos, and extra garlic.  That's what I love about cooking--there is definitely room to experiment, where as in baking, you necessarily have that wiggle room as it's more of a science.  As hoped, the chili turned out delicious and it went perfectly with a super-quick scone I made (pictured above), which I'll post about soon.

I'm tossed up on this. I'm not a big fan of pumpkin things (I know...) but I certainly do like chili. I might give this a whirl. Do you think I could substitute butternut squash? Or would that ruin it.

Kara said...

OoOh that sounds yummy. I'll break out this chili recipe once it finally starts getting cooler here. Scones sound good too, but they were a disaster the first (and last) time I made them!!
