Pumpkin Chili

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by anonymous23

This is based on a recipe I found years ago on allrecipes.com, but probably looks nothing like the original recipe because reviewers offered so many variations. This is my favorite version. (I might add mushrooms next time, just to try it; looks yummy in Pumpkin Chili.)

I loved the way the pumpkin added thickness to the soup and a wonderful dimension to the flavors. I halved the ground beef, used chicken broth for the tomato juice and added carrots and celery. The pumpkin was not sweet in any way but was savory. I really enjoyed it.
