A creamy textured chili with all the flavor of regular chili. And with the health boost of pumpkin.
Saute onion in olive oil until translucent. Add ground beef and break into small bits as it cooks. Heat until brown with no pink remaining in meat. If meat is greasy, strain away from beef and onion mixture.
Add remaining ingredients. Stir and heat through.
Simmer on stove top for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Serve immediately or cool slightly before placing in refrigerator. Store in containers for freezer if saving for "leftover" meals.
If serving immediately, add desired garnishes, like sour cream, chopped chives or green onions, parsley. shredded cheese, etc. Create ChiliMac by serving over your choice of noodles.
