Pumpkin Chili - A Rainy Day Dish

"Are you crazy! You fed a baby chili?!" - Mr. Mom
   The Wife and I are always looking for quick, easy, yummy, and relatively healthy meals to cook at home. The Wife found this recipe and we've fallen in love with. It's especially tasty during the colder months. We've tried minor variations to see how we can improve or change it to our liking, but with the original recipe, one can never go wrong. It's got so many flavors, colors, and textures that I'll take it any day of the week. It re-heats well and can either add to you children's favorites, or be used as punishment if they don't eat their own dinner (your choice parents!).
