The taste of the pumpkin is actually not strong. I assure you, children will not notice it! It is the perfect hidden veggie in this chili recipe.
What Kind of Pumpkin Do You Use for This Recipe?
When I say “pumpkin” for this chili recipe, I don’t mean the carve-your-jack-o-lantern style pumpkin. Although it is edible, it doesn’t have the sweetness you want for this dish. The type of pumpkin that is best for cooking and baking is a sugar pie pumpkin.
