Pumpkin Chili

Well, it looks like we may have a few days of fall this year, so last night it was pumpkin chili and football at my house.  It is quick and easy, and I usually double the batch to freeze.


1 lb ground beef ( I use 96/4)

1 onion, chopped

2 14.5 oz cans diced tomatoes

1 14.5oz can crushed tomatoes

1 15 oz can pinto, red, or black beans (drained and rinsed) I usually have cooked beans on hand and use about 2 cups

1 can green chilis

1 cup corn

1 can of pumpkin

chili powder


  1.  Brown the beef and onions together.
  2. Add the rest of the ingredients.  Stir.  Add chili powder and cumin to taste.
  3. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 30-40 minutes.
  4. Enjoy!
