Who knew that canned pumpkin was the key to your best pot of chili? It thickens the broth and boosts the flavor in an unexpected way, lending richness and amping up the umami. If you have family members who aren’t so fond of pumpkin, don’t worry; they won’t detect the flavor at all but will appreciate the texture and depth it provides. We prefer fire-roasted diced tomatoes here, but if you can’t find them, use regular diced tomatoes and bump up the smoked paprika by another one-fourth teaspoon.
