i've made this stew for that last 3 halloweens. it's just delicious.
and so again.

2 cloves garlic, minced
red bell pepper, chopped
1-2 teaspoons chili powder
1teaspoon cumin
1 lb tomatillos, quartered
1 lb tomatoes, chopped or 1 big can diced tomatoes
1 15oz can hominy
2 small pumpkins, or 1 big one
salt and pepper

cut the top off your pumpkin and remove all seeds and guts.  rub inside with olive oil and sprinkle with salt.

first, sauté the onion for a few minutes, then add garlic, and pepper.  then add chili powder and cumin sauté for about 3 minutes.  add your tomatillos, tomatoes, and hominy with about 1/2 water and simmer until tomatillos are just beginning to soften, about 10 minutes. season.

stuff stew into prepared pumpkins and cover with pumpkin top.  bake at 350' for 1 1/2 to 2 hours until inner pumpkin flesh is soft.

Serve topped with cucumber avocado salsa.
