Ingredients: Gather 1 lb ground beef, 1 onion (chopped), 1 red bell pepper (chopped), 2 cloves garlic (minced), 1 can (15 oz) pumpkin puree, 1 can (15 oz) diced tomatoes, 1 can (15 oz) black beans (drained and rinsed), 1 can (15 oz) kidney beans (drained and rinsed), 2 cups chicken or vegetable broth, 2 tbsp chili powder, 1 tsp cumin, 1/2 tsp cinnamon, salt, and pepper to taste.
Brown the Meat: In a large pot, brown the ground beef over medium-high heat until fully cooked. Drain excess fat.
Sauté Veggies: Add chopped onion, red bell pepper, and minced garlic to the pot. Sauté until they soften, about 5 minutes.
Add Seasonings: Stir in chili powder, cumin, cinnamon, salt, and pepper. Cook for an additional 2 minutes to release the flavors.
Combine Ingredients: Add pumpkin puree, diced tomatoes, black beans, kidney beans, and chicken or vegetable broth. Mix well.
Simmer: Bring the chili to a boil, then reduce the heat to low. Let it simmer uncovered for about 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Adjust Seasoning: Taste and adjust seasoning as needed. You can add more chili powder or spices for extra flavor.
Serve: Ladle your pumpkin chili into bowls, garnish with your choice of toppings (e.g., shredded cheese, sour cream, chopped green onions), and enjoy your Halloween treat!
