Around here chili has beans (forgive me if you’re from Texas) and it’s got a little spice and a lot of savory. I recently became aware of another version of chili that includes pumpkin and a little hint of sweet. Immediately I knew I wanted to try it and immediately I knew my family may not forgive me. 😅 But I decided I was willing to sacrifice one weeknight meal and give it a go. I read several recipes and settled on a version I found easiest – and with what I had on hand. Because there’s nothing easy about having to go back to the store to get something you don’t have and I’m a firm believer in substitutions. The end result was a perfectly delightful bowl of sweet and savory chili that I’ll be making again and again. My husband still prefers my regular version, but nobody left a spoonful in their bowl and I take that as a sure sign of success. 😉 Hope you’ll give this a try and let me know what you think!
You’ll want to try Hearty Sol’s Buttery Layered Biscuits with this chili. They’re the perfect thing to go with a warm soup, deep dish casserole, or just warm right out of the oven with a little bit of strawberry jam!
