Pumpkin Chili

Chili is a great solution to any freezing winter evening. This chili is wonderful for the holiday season because of the addition of pumpkin and warming holiday spices like nutmeg, cinnamon, and ginger.

Enjoy with some sweet potato fries and top with avocado for a completely satisfying meal.
