This tasty vegetarian chili has a unique ingredient, pumpkin. It doesn't affect the taste but does add plenty of vitamins and fiber to the recipe. If desired, serve with shredded Cheddar cheese. Note it is very spicy!

I halved the recipe and it still made quite a bit. It is very spicy adjust to personal taste I omitted the jalapeno and would reduce the cayenne next time. I replaced the garbanzo beans with vegetarian baked beans as my son doesn't like them. You cannot taste the pumpkin it just makes it very thick. Topped with sour cream and shredded cheddar. #AllrecipesAllstarsCanada #Pumpkincraze Read More

I love how healthy and rich and savory this is! I left out the corn and added a pound of lean ground beef. Absolutely fantastic. My favorite chili ever! Read More
