When I plan a Halloween party, the first thing I think of is the food. Tell me I’m not the only one. For some it’s the shopping, decorating, or costumes. For me it’s all about the food. This years Halloween Party features my new Pumpkin Jalapeno Chili, I’ve attempted pumpkin chili before with mediocre results. This year I got it right. Yippee! I like to keep the food simple and delicious so that I can enjoy the party.
The party food included caramel apples, Pumpkin Jalapeno Chili, pretzels with caramel and sprinkles, radish eyeballs with cream cheese and olives, breadstick skeleton bones and mozzarella finger with grape tomatoes.
Pumpkin Jalapeno Chili Recipe (Printable)
3 lbs ground beef
2 cups pumpkin
1 diced onion
4 cloves minced garlic
2 teaspoons Hot Mexican Chili Powder
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1 cup water
1 teaspoon Knorr beef stock
4 jalapenos (roast them until they are black on the outside, then remove seeds and rib and dice)
4 cans drained black beans
It wouldn’t be Halloween without lots of candy.
What a fun party!
Kids always like eating powdered donuts off the clothes line without using their hands, wrapping each other in toilet paper as mummies, and bobbing for apples. Lots of fun for everyone!
Mummy cupcakes are always a big hit at Halloween Parties.
