My dad was was the Chili King in my household growing up. He would actually grind his own meat for it and slow cook it all day long on his day off. He would serve his delicious chili with warm cornbread and butter. It was so good and the perfect meal on a cold day.
I've made everything from beef chili to chicken chili. This chili is a pulled pork chili. A definite first for me. It was amazing though. I may like the pulled pork chili better than regular chili!
For the squash that I added to the chili, I roasted a butternut squash and cut into large cubes. You can use whatever your preference is with squash though.
Serving the chili in a pumpkin was different, but as I ate the chili, I scraped the sides of the pumpkin down and mixed into the chili and it was almost a thickening agent like when you dip cornbread in your chili.
This meal would've been completely paleo, however, I sprinkled a tiny bit of cheese on mine.
