    I add pureed pumpkin to my chili. Gives it a nice creamy texture without overpowering the flavor of the chili. It’s also pretty could pureed in soups and such for the same reason.

      Ooh, that’s a great idea! And I actually take those giant Jack-o-lantern pumpkins and puree them, too, to use in recipes–their only fault is that they’re not as “pumpkiny” as a pie pumpkin, but I bet that would be AWESOME in chili!
