Ahh! Its my favorite time of the year. The leaves are changing colors, and falling. There is a crispness in the air, and the smell of autumn filling up my nose.

What better way to bring the fall season in, then cooking an undeniably delicious pumpkin dish?

I use "Bella" crockpot and love it!

This dish is so insanely easy, and the flavor is explosive! I used Nature’s promise Organic white rice, and cooked that in a separate pot for about 20 minutes.

The only thing I forgot to pick up at the grocery store was the lime wedges and cilantro, but it was still amazing without it.

I started cooking this late in the day, so John and I were too hungry to wait 5 hours. We waited 3 hours and it was ready to eat!

This dish has an awesome zip to it, the pumpkin flavor is very light, so feel free to add more puree then directed. img_1411

Overall, this was a great fall dish to warm you up on a cold autumn night, and fill your bellies! Can’t wait to eat my left overs!
