In the end I really did like this/is a keeper but gets a 3 because I made so many changes from the original. I give a 5 for perfect as is, 4 for minor changes, 3 for lots of changes.Used a red pepper just because that is what I had on hand/that does not really affect the flavor much though. The spices are another story: as is this is bland and tastes too much like just pumpkin.I doubled the garlic (2 cloves), increased pinch of salt to 1/2 tsp and added 1/4tsp of red pepper flakes and 1 1/2 tsp of cumin. Pumpkin and cumin make a nice combo and tastes more chili like. After that the flavor was good but the texture was too thick and added 1 c of chicken broth to get it too the right consistency.I added a can of black beans just because I like beans in my chili.
