Spicy Pumpkin

This is a family favorite side dish to many meals.  Always had this kids in the kitchen helping make this.  If you don’t like it too spicy cut down on the pepper.  Great addition to the family meal plan as all ages like this.  Don’t be afraid to try different varieties of pumpkin and find what is your favorite.
