I had no intention of posting this tonight, but it was so yummy that I decided to.  I took my earlier recipe here of Pumpkin Chili, and made it a little better, and a little lower carb.  This makes 7 good hearty 1 cup servings and boy is it good on a very very cold snowy day in Minnesota.

I guess you can decide which one you'd rather make and judge for yourself what you like. This is one of my family's favorite chili recipes.   I hope you like it too.
