Yes, it is autumn...so what could be better than pumpkin chili?!!!
Adapted from this recipe
I added 1lb extra hamburger, a 64 oz container of v-8, extra spices and beans and did a whole can of pumpkin instead of half.
So kind of funny, I went to the store to get bell pepper and onion because somehow I was actually out! *gasp*
While there I realized no cans of beans - well they wanted $1.50 for 1 can of beans! yes, so at 1am I was starting a pot of beans last night.
Then today, I realized, no pumpkin pie spice! LOL so I made some up from this recipe here
the only thing not from scratch was canned tomatoes and the canned pumpkin...maybe next time I should remedy that!
Looks great and smells divine! I can't wait to taste it.
