      i have one suggestion that i think made this chili everyones favorite... i decided to be festive and make this for our halloween dinner party. everyone was skeptical before i made it but after tasting could not figure out how such a unique mix could be so good! every single guest went back for seconds:) i followed the recipe except i used ground beef instead of turkey because i think it adds more flavor. i also added browned beef & cooked rest of ingredients in crockpot instead of using a skillet. kept on low for an hour so guest could eat whenever they were hungry. my one suggestion that was a big hit is to serve warm chili over a large bake potato and top with sour cream and chives. this will be are annualy halloween chili for years to come. thanks for posting!!!

      I wasn't sure what to expect, but I was quite delighted with the end result. I made this almost exactly as posted, except I used a packet of hot chili seasoning mix in place of the spices, and also added a tad bit of salt to taste. The pumpkin really added a great texture to the chili and a subtle creaminess that elevated this from plain old chili to scrumptious chili. I will definitely be making this again!

      This one wasn't for us. It was too tomatoey for us and I only used 1 8oz can of tomatoe sauce. As soon as I put it in, I knew I shouldn't have put any. It was edible but I wouldn't make it again. We covered up the taste by adding cheese, sour cream, and sir racha on top. And eating it with tostadas. I took it to my neighbor and she liked it, but she loves tomatoes.
