I normally don’t alter your recipes.I didn’t have all ingredients so had to this time. I used pinto beans in place of black beans , chicken stock instead of beer, added 1tsp oregano, butternut squash, and chuck stew meat. I cooked it in 350o oven 2 1/2 hours . Divine!
So delicious and so easy. I used chicken sausage instead of the pork. Will make again.
This is easy to make.First time I have made chili. I cut back on the salt and the chili powder amounts ( 2 tsp salt and 1 tbsp chili powder). I used a butternut squash from my home garden. The chili was delicious. I highly recommend. The reason for 4 stars both the prep time and cooking time took me longer than 30 minutes. One note had to buy 6 bottles of beer.
Loved loved!! I used butternut squash and a pork smoked sausage link I had in the freezer. Sliced it into small pieces. Otherwise, I kept everything else the same. Cooked up quickly and was delicious, without the beer. We didn’t have a single bottle of beer in the refrigerator!! Will definitely make it again. Thank you!
What would you suggest for replacement of meat… I can of kidney beans? or any other suggestions,
Hi, Christa! Yes, another can of beans would be good! I’d also suggest chopped mushrooms, crumbled baked tofu (not firm tofu; look for baked), or cooked green or brown lentils. All of these have a similar texture to ground pork and would be great in this recipe!
I’d like to substitute pumpkin puree that I have in my freezer. How much should I use?
Hi, Christa! A one pound squash should give you 3-4 cups of cubed squash, so I’d say maybe 3 cups of puree? Note that this recipe uses cubes and not puree, so if you substitute puree, the texture and flavor will be quite a bit different. If you try it, let us know how it turns out!
Never made pumpkin chili – but have made lots of pumpkin stews/soups. this looks like fun. The only comment for other folks is be careful with the peeling – it is not easy.
I would replace the can of diced tomatoes with a can of diced tomatoes with green chillies and remove the powdered chillie for a fresher taste!
This is a great fall treat!
Green chilies are totally different than using actual chili powder. you can’t exactly substitute one for the other.
what can I substitute for the beer. highly allergic. thanks so much.
Hi, Theresa! Can you drink hard cider? If so, I’d use that. Crispin or Angry Orchard both make ciders that are good and fairly widely available. If you can’t have alcohol at all, I’d skip it and use chicken broth instead. Hope that helps! I hope you enjoy the recipe!
I think a splash of coffee along with the water or broth needed to get to 12 oz. would also work.
Ooh, good idea!
Hi Theresa. Can you have ginger beer? It is not really beer, but made from ginger and cane sugar. It might be too sweet for this though. Are you allergic to the gluten in beer? I am, and I have found some decent beers not made with any wheat or barley. The sorghum beer is dreadful, but there are beers made from rice, I think.
Ginger beer is not beer therefore I wouldn’t use that to substitute for beer. It’s like ginger ale.
I was hoping this chili was tomato free. I am allergic to tomatoes and miss chili
All in on this recipe as soon as I can round up the ingredients. It sounds great!
This seriously sounds amazinnggg! I have to try!
