Game Day Pumpkin Chili (Whole30 & Keto)

Fall is officially here and you know what that means, football Sunday is back! Now, you know, I may not know a lot about the game, but I do know easy and comforting game-day food is bliss. One dish everyone should have in there back pocket is a good chili recipe. So today, I’m so happy to share my Game-day Pumpkin Chili in partnership with Pre Brands. It’s Whole30, Paleo and Keto friendly and oh so delicious.

First, the key to any deliciously easy recipe is quality ingredients. And that is precisely why I absolutely love Pre Brands. Pre is an 100% grass-fed and finished beef company that offers ground beef, steaks, burger patties and chuck roast. Their goal is to deliver on taste while never sacrificing on quality. Pre’s beef is sourced from New Zealand and Australia and everything is pasture-raised year round. And the icing on the cake, they are easily accessible. Pre beef can be purchased in many grocery stores across the Midwest and the east coast, as well as Amazon fresh and on their website.

Now, this Game Day pumpkin chili is not only great on game day, it’s always perfect for meal prep. I love making a huge batch of it and keeping some in the freezer. If you’re doing a Whole30, you can serve your pumpkin chili inside a roasted potato, or by itself with avocado pieces, jalapeños and fresh herbs.


If you’re not on a Whole30, here are some other ways to enjoy your Pumpkin chili:

  • Add some cheddar or Mexican blend cheese on top
  • You can create a taco salad with tortillas, lettuce, tomatoes, chili, cheese and sour cream.
  • Serve your chili over spaghetti
  • You can also serve it over a hotdog

Prep Time:10 mins
Cook Time:1 Hr 15 mins
Total Time:1 Hr 25 mins
Yields:6 Serves


  • 1
    lb Pre Brands grass-fed ground beef
  • 1
    green bell pepper, diced
  • 1
    onion, diced
  • 4
    cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ tsp salt, plus more to taste
  • 1
    tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1
    tsp chili powder
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • 1
    tbsp tomato paste
  • 1
    cup Whole30 compliant beef broth
  • 1
    28-ounce can diced tomatoes
  • ½ cup pumpkin purée
  • 2
    tbsp coconut aminos

  • Avocado pieces
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Fresh jalapeños, red or green


  1. To begin, heat a large pot or Dutch oven over medium-high heat and add ground beef. Cook the beef until it’s brown and drain off some of the fat, leaving about 2 tablespoons of fat in the pan. Add the bell pepper, onion and garlic and season with ½ a teaspoon of salt. Sauté the vegetables until the peppers are tender, about 5-7 minutes.
  2. Now, add the pumpkin spice, chili powder, ground cumin and tomato paste to the pot. Stir and continue to sauté for 2 minutes. To deglaze the pan, pour the broth into the pot and stir to lift up all the brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Then add in the tomatoes, pumpkin purée and coconut aminos. Stir the chili, lower the heat to medium, cover the pot and simmer for 1 hour, stirring occasionally.
  3. After an hour, taste the chili and season when more salt to taste.
  4. Garnish and serve immediately.
  5. Store leftovers in an air tight container in the fridge for 3-4 days.
  6. You can also double the recipe and freeze some for up to 6 months for easy meals.
