The vivid contrast of the black beans and bright orange pumpkin makes this chili a perfect party food at Halloween time. Make it the centerpiece of your table by serving it in a large, hollowed-out pumpkin or an old cast-iron "cauldron."
RECIPE INGREDIENTS
2 pounds pumpkin or butternut squash, peeled and seeded
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
1 garlic clove, minced
1 jalapeño chile, minced
One 14 1/2-ounce can diced tomatoes, drained
One 14 1/2-ounce can crushed tomatoes
1 cup water
1 cup apple juice
4 tablespoons chili powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 cups cooked or canned black beans, rinsed and drained if canned
DIRECTIONS
Cut the pumpkin into 1/2-inch chunks and set aside.


Heat the oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion, garlic, and jalapeño. Cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 10 minutes. Add the reserved pumpkin, diced tomatoes, crushed tomatoes, water, apple juice, chili powder, salt, and cayenne, and stir well. Bring to a boil, lower the heat, cover, and simmer until the pumpkin is tender, about 30 minutes.


Add the beans, and more water if the chili is too thick for your taste. Cover, and continue to simmer for about 15 minutes to blend the flavors. Serve hot.
