I love the weather during the fall.  I am always very eagerly awaiting that first cold snap so I can make chili.  I know, you can have chili whenever you want, but I prefer it when it’s cool outside.  My family really enjoys a good chili even when it has a unique twist.  This Pumpkin Chili combines 2 favorite fall flavors and makes for a delicious warm meal.
