spicy pumpkin black bean chili

SMBP // Pumpkin Black Bean Chili
One of my favorite things about Autumn is Chili- big steaming bowls of spicy chili with a side of cornbread or tortilla chips. Our first bowl marks the start of the season and will continue on throughout the cold winter months- to say it is a weekly occurrence is an understatement , it is definitely a weekend tradition.

We are still lucky enough to be harvesting tomatoes out of the Garden, sadly I think this will be the last harvest of the year. Canned tomatoes can easily be used in place of  fresh, sugar pumpkin or any winter squash for that matter can be used in place of the Long Island Cheese Pumpkin.

Really chili is so adaptable- we prefer black bean or pinto beans, but kidney beans are also a great option.  Heat and spices are also up to the cook in charge- spicy or not so much completely up to you!

The Long Island Cheese Pumpkin is a new to me heirloom variety that I tried my hand at growing this year- they are totally on the list for next year too! A super easy winter squash to grow, with a bright orange and incredibly sweet flesh.

I prefer my chili on the thinner side, you can definitely reduce the beer or broth to your liking or increase the cooking time for a thicker stew like chili with less "broth".

Leftovers are awesome the next day and can also be frozen for a quick dinner later in the month.

What dishes remind you of Fall or Autumn- actually what do you reference this time of year as ; Fall or Autumn?

I'm totally thinking I need to organize a chili bar dinner at my house for friends + family!
