One of the hardest things about the fall season is cooking with pumpkin, because it’s nearly impossible to find a pumpkin recipe that doesn’t involve lots of sugar and fat.  It’s all pumpkin pie, pumpkin spice latte, pumpkin cookies, pumpkin bread, etc.

For me, this leads to an epidemic of pumpkin love handles, pumpkin buddha belly and pumpkin-induced double chin.  Still, I can’t resist fresh pumpkins when I see them at the farmer’s market or grocery store.  Their bright orange-ness is alluring and screams “nutrients” at me in a way I can’t walk away from.  Over the years, I’ve learned to use pumpkin for good rather than evil.

I made his pumpkin chili tonight and it was KILLER – a great, savory way to eat some pumpkin!  I used freshly chopped pumpkin, but you can certainly substitute canned puree if it’s all you have.

Enjoy!
