Pumpkin Chili (See Jane Simmer)

Although Christmas decorations may be up in stores already, it’s still harvest time which means pumpkin until Thanksgiving!  I found this recipe through one of my favorite websites, allrecipes.com, and once I saw the words ‘pumpkin’ and ‘chili’ side by side, knew I had to try it.  I improvised a bit and added a few things, including corn, black beans, cumin, cayenne pepper, paprika, jalapenos, and extra garlic.  That’s what I love about cooking–there is definitely room to experiment, where as in baking, you necessarily have that wiggle room as it’s more of a science.  As hoped, the chili turned out delicious and it went perfectly with a super-quick scone I made (pictured above), which I’ll post about soon.


  1. Pumpkin chili sounds like the greatest meal on earth. Allrecipes is one of my favorite sites too. I love reading all the reviews and seeing what people added/changed. And the scone?? Amazing.


  2. You had me at pumpkin! Will definitely be trying this as soon as this ridiculous hot weather calms down! It was 96 today! Awful! I'll be vicariously living through you're appropriately tempered weather!
