Where my tour girls at?! Ok, now that we’ve all caught up on sleep…I’m home, I’m SO happy, and I made my favorite Pumpkin Chili for you guys! This is one of my faves to break out in the fall, because I love ANYTHING pumpkin and thought this week would be the perfect time talk about it.

The recipe combines two types of beans, pumpkin beer, pumpkin puree, and all kinds of other delicious chili ingredients that will leave you more than satisfied. Plus, you’ll have a fridge full of chili for about a week! And you know it’s better the next day, anyway. Hope you all enjoy. We definitely did, which led to a dance party after dinner. Sometimes all you need to get through a pile of dishes after cooking is to bust a move with your family and your favorite song on blast!
