I’ve made this over and over again, with okay results, but always wondering what was missing. Well, it turns out nothing was missing. Instead I was trying to do too much.

Pumpkin chili ingredients
I was trying turn my Wendy’s Chili Recipe into pumpkin chili, rather than letting the pumpkin chili be something of its own. So when I finally came to my senses and stripped the recipe down to it’s essentials, the heavens parted and the chili gods smiled. Seriously, this Pumpkin Chili is goooood.
The other bonus to making this chili so simple is that it comes together in absolutely no time at all. Ten minutes start to finish and you’re chilling on the couch, watching football and savoring your hard work.
- Ground beef
- Chicken stock
