Oh-My-Goodness. This is certainly a Spooky, yet very Healthy Halloween meal if you have ever seen one! Completely original too! You know those moments where you just have a crazy meal idea and you just roll with it? Well.. this is one of those moments for sure. The thing is, this meal is brought to you by my husband. It and he were crazy! He was so exited to make this and really wanted to put our overstocked supply of winter squash to use! We just love all winter squash so he insisted we make this (as we both get super festive during the holidays.) 😉 Hey, I will take it, we had a blast being the dorks that we so very often are. (Meet Harry Potter’s BIGGEST Fans Below, just saying!)
I give you a Jack O’ Lantern with a twist! A delicious and edible twist! Here we have a Kabocha Squash and/or a Sugar Pumpkin (we use both, why not!) filled with delicious chili (all the toppings please!) and served with homemade pumpkin seeds from both the Kabocha Squash and the Sugar Pumpkin!
The best part is, once it is all assembled, you put it all in the oven to do all the work. For even more of an easy time, just buy store-bought chili to keep this simple OR make a Moni Chili Recipe of course is fine too!
This super FUN, HEALTHY, DELICIOUS, HAPPY, and a KID-LOVIN’ Halloween Idea. Great for parties- especially for you vegetarian and vegans, or if you want to just try something new- instead of carving plain old pumpkins! Try new flavors too, c’mon!
The kids love the this too! They can decorate the mouth with the pumpkin seeds and the best part is, when you are ready to eat this, you can then cut the mouth out even more to get the chili oozing out like GUTS! 😉
Now it seems like a lot of work, but in reality, it really is not. Just a bit time consuming. Turn on some good Halloween tunes and make this “Spook-tacular” Meal!
Want something sweet this Halloween BUT without all the fat, sugar, and calories? I thought so! Relax and try my Moni’s ” Blizzard-like” Spooky Protein Shake!! Really tasty and it involves your favorite “fun-size” candies.
Also, here <——-you will find instructions for making the BEST Pumpkin Seeds ever if you are carving pumpkins with the kids and friends as well.
Remember…”Spook-tacular Squash O’ Lantern Chili Bowls” are 100% from my amazing and creative husband. Mu-ha-ha-ha, make them…if you dare!
