Like it or not, autumn is coming. With each new morning, the temperature drops a couple degrees lower, and the darkness hangs on just a few minutes longer.  I’m usually dragged into cooler weather kicking and screaming, but this year I’m not dreading it quite so much.

In fact, I’m a little excited about bonfires, soft, wooly scarves, knee-high boots, soups, stews, and chilis, and all of the new spiced pumpkin recipes floating around on Pinterest. Unfortunately, most of those recipes aren’t Whole30-compliant.

To usher in the new season and mark two items off my fall to-do list at once, I came up with this Whole30 Spiced Pumpkin Chili, and boy is it delicious!

We buy pumpkins each year for decorating and carving, but, as much as I love the flavor, I never actually cook anything with them.  I think it’s part of my loathing for colder weather that has always held me back. I just hunker down all season and pretend it’s not really happening. Since I’m actually looking forward to fall and all it has to offer this year, all bets are off.  I know of at least five more pumpkin recipes I can’t wait to make.

I wanted the pumpkin flavor and the spices that compliment it to really pop in this chili, so I amped up those ingredients and toned down the others.  The kids loved it. Even my oldest daughter, who hates everything, ate every bite. That’s a BIG win for me. When I confessed that it was Whole30 Spiced Pumpkin Chili, she made a face but continued to eat. Also, it wasn’t so spicy that the baby couldn’t enjoy it as well.  (He’s one.)
