If you can operate a can opener, you can make this chili. And if you’re lucky, you’ll have all the ingredients right in your pantry. Last year, there was a pumpkin shortage but cans of pumpkin are back in stores now, so consider this a reason to stock up! Here’s what you need:
Just mix the pumpkin, diced tomatoes in juice, tomato sauce, beans (rinsed and drained), and the corn in a big pot. Add about a tablespoon of chili powder and simmer until heated through. That’s it!
The pumpkin flavor is subtle here, similar to this pumpkin chili made with ground turkey. And it’s definitely very thick! But served with some shredded cheese, it is a perfectly quick and healthy meal.
