Pumpkin Sloppy Joes Recipe.

Pumpkins have started appearing at the grocery store, and there are all kinds of ways to enjoy them that don’t involve pie! Here’s just one: a Paleo twist on sloppy Joes with a pumpkin-flavored beef chili served inside roasted sweet potatoes. It’s just on the line between sweet and savory, and the allspice, cloves, and chili powder give it depth with just a pinch of heat.
