I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Pork and Pumpkin Chili

Pumpkin adds a natural sweetness that compliments the different spices and seasonings in this fall favourite. And it gets even better the next day!

2 tbsps olive oil
1 onion, diced 
6 tsps minced garlic 
1 tsp sugar 
1 tbsp chili powder
1 tbsp cumin
1 tsp cinnamon 
2 tsps oregano 
1 lb ground pork 
3 tbsps tomato paste 
2 bell peppers, diced 
28 oz can diced tomatoes
2 cups beef broth 
19 oz can black beans
2 cups peeled and cubed pumpkin 
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat olive oil on medium high in a Dutch oven. Add the onion and garlic and sauté just until fragrant. Add the sugar, chili powder, cumin, cinnamon and oregano. Then make a space in the center of the pan and add the pork. Brown and break up the meat cooking until no pink remains.

Add the tomato paste, diced tomatoes, bell peppers and broth. I used this can of diced tomatoes in purée but regular diced tomatoes work too. Bring to a boil then reduce heat, cover and simmer 15 minutes.

Add the black beans and pumpkin, salt and pepper. Bring back to a simmer, cover and cook 25 minutes or until pumpkin is tender. Check and adjust seasonings to taste.

Serve it as is or over toasted buns.
Makes 4-6 servings
