    love it! if you have cavemen in your home who think that they are mega meat eaters, try grinding mushrooms up in your food processor and adding it to the chilli . It has the same texture as ground meat. - 8/26/08

    My husband & I got in an argument at the store when I told him there was pumpkin in the chili (he's not a pumpkin fan) but he had 2 helpings & said it was the best chili he's ever had! So thank you for helping me cook healthier! - 10/4/10

    I loved this chili! The pumpkin gives it a rich color, the chili is thick like I like it, and you can't taste the pumpkin. It seems so nutritious! - 5/14/09

    This was fabulous! I didn't use plain pepper, though. I used cayenne pepper and it was plenty spicy that way! DH NEVER knew there was pumpkin in it and he LOVED this chili! It's possibly the best chili recipe we've tried- and it's a keeper!! - 8/28/08
