My plan was this: To par cook some chili in a soup pot like usual (so the ingredients are all there but undercooked) and then pile it all into the pumpkin) and bake it in the oven. My hope is that as the pumpkin baked, the flesh would pull away from the skin and I would have a giant pumpkin pot of delicious chili.
Has anyone tried anything like this? Do you think it will work? Or am I running the risk of a pumpkin full of chili collapsing all over the oven?
