Cut pumpkin in half and discard seeds and pulp. Place pumpkin, cut-side down, on a baking sheet. Bake in a 350° oven about 40 minutes or until tender. Remove from oven; set aside until cool enough to handle.Advertisement
Meanwhile, in a 4- to 6- quart Dutch oven, cook ground beef, ground turkey, sweet pepper, onion and garlic in hot oil over medium-high heat until meat is brown and vegetables are just tender. Add all remaining ingredients, except the pumpkin. Bring to boiling; reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, 1 hour; stirring occasionally.
Cut each baked, cooled pumpkin half into 4 wedges. Remove the rind and cut into 1/2-inch pieces. Add to chili. Simmer, covered, for 20 minutes more.
