Cook beans according to package directions. (I usually forget to soak them over night so I add an hour and a half or so to the cooking time, just make sure the beans are cooked enough before adding other ingredients.) Once beans are well cooked, add pumpkin and salsa, seasoning and stir well. Bring to a slow simmer for a few minutes and it's ready to serve.
As with all my recipes, there is room to change things up as you would like. I suggest starting with one cup of the salsa and see if you like it before adding more. Same with the cumin and salt. Add a minimum amount then more if you think it needs it. This pumpkin chili is great with sour cream on top, and if you like more heat, add some cayenne or pepper flakes. If you don't have Chipotle salsa, chop up a couple of Chipotle peppers in Adobe sauce and add them along with a couple of tablespoons of the Adobe. No Cumin? Try some Taco Seasoning.
