Pumpkin Chili

What a lovely weekend! Yesterday, instead of hitting the gym, GF Guy, Dickens, and I went on a two hour walk around one of favorite Denver neighborhoods picking out million dollar homes that, one day, we will live in. (Dream big, right?) Then, it was a quick stop at the dog park for a little doggy social time. It’s always more fun to get outside then it is running like a hamster on the treadmill. 
Dinner, was a special request by GF Guy…. Pumpkin Chili!

I posted this recipe two years ago, but thought it was time for an encore. 
This recipe is a legend in our family. They pass it from person to person, even giving the ingredients away as house-warming and birthday gifts! Trust me… it is that good!
