I'm sharing this recipe for @allischaaff
Every year, the night before Samhain (Halloween; the terms are interchangeable in my multi-faith household) my family carves pumpkins. We do not discard anything, though. Seeds get roasted and the stringy stuff gets slow-cooked overnight. On Halloween, I use the pumpkin puree in unique new ways (although my kids' favorite is pumpkin chili, which they always insist I make for dinner.) This year, we are going to have pumpkin burritos!
What you need (makes about 12 burritos): 1 and 1/2- cups pumpkin puree (canned or homemade) 1- 31 oz can of refried beans 1 lb ground beef, browned and drained 1 tbsp sugar 1 tsp garlic powder 1/4 tsp cinnamon 1/4 tsp nutmeg 1 to 6 tbsp taco sauce (to taste) salt/pepper (to taste) burrito wraps optional toppings: shredded lettuce diced tomatoes sour cream guacamole picante sauce shredded cheese
Stir together beef, beans, pumpkin, taco sauce, sugar, and seasonings. Cover. Cook over medium-low heat, stirring occasionally. Steam burrito wraps, as desired. Spoon filling onto wrap, sprinkle on your favorite toppings (either in the wrap or smother it), and enjoy!
Sooooo gooood!

These went over so well today! The girls kept coming back for more, and they're not really into burritos. I ought to try mixing pumpkin into something they don't like. o.Ô
