Suzy's Pantry Chili
This is one of my favorite chili recipes, with a secret nutritional boost from canned pumpkin! You can adapt the recipe to use what you have on hand. No ground beef? Use ground turkey, chicken or even leave the meat out, just add an extra can of beans. No kidney beans? Mix it up and use pintos, black beans or garbanzos.
