Some people don't like to have soup during the summer. But, I love it for a go-to lunch. This is one of my favorite soups, an all-time comfort food for me. During a recent bout with the flu, I whipped up a batch and froze the extra. It reheated really well in the microwave, so it may be a real keeper for freezer cooking.
Besides adding a sweet nutty flavor to dishes, pumpkin is a ready source of vitamin A, which boosts the nutrition content of this offbeat chili. Garnish each portion with a dollop of sour cream and chopped cilantro.
