Pumpkin Caramel Chili


pumpkin caramel chili recipe

Yes, you read right! Yep, I did it! I made the perfect Fall Chili – a Pumpkin Caramel Chili.
What can I say, Pumpkin Pie with meat 😉
Sounds gross?! Wait until you try it.
My husband wasn’t so looking forward to eating it too, when I first told him, what I am going to make … now he loves it!
The flavors are amazing and fit together so perfectly good (surprising, I know).

I guess chili is like oatmeal, you can do almost everything with it. I really gotta say, that this is going to be one of my most favorite chili ever. I even think I will take this one to the chili cookout we have here in March.
We might have a winner here :)

You can basically use your favorite chili and mix the last 6 ingredients into it, or take the complete recipe from me.
