Based on One of Our Favorite Recipes

Have I ever told you about the time I won a major award?? It might be the only award I’ve ever won actually. I won a chili cooking contest probably about 10 years ago. It was a recipe I created for Slow Cooker Pumpkin Chili. It’s still one of my family’s favorite recipes! I usually make it on Halloween night and the kids have that with my homemade breadsticks after they come back from their Halloween parties or trick-or-treating.
