Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili with Cornbread Croutons

This savory Vegetarian Pumpkin Chili has everything you want in a chili: tomatoes, peppers, black beans, pinto beans, corn, and a little pumpkin in there to make it perfect for fall!

No one will even believe there’s pumpkin mixed in, and the flavor is incredible. This is a pumpkin chili recipe I would use for a game day, as an easy weeknight dinner, or to have warm on the stove for Halloween night! I like to make homemade cornbread croutons to top things off, they aren’t required, but SO good! They take the pumpkin to a whole new level. Our family looks forward to this chili recipe every single year. It is a fall staple at our house. I love having a big pot of chili simmering on my stove. Nothing feels quite so cozy! Once you have your ingredients gathered, this Pumpkin Chili comes together quickly, making it a slam-dunk weeknight meal that everyone in your house will love.
