"There are many versions of this stew-soup in Central and South America. Scented with cumin, it makes a hearty supper on a chilly winter night." In a medium nonstick saucepan, heat the oil over medium high heat. Add chicken; cook, turning frequently, until lightly browned on all sides. Remove chicken; set aside. Add onion; cook until golden. Add celery, bell pepper, jalapeno and cumin; cook, stirring, for 3 minutes. Add broth, tomatoes, pumpkin and sweet potato; bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer until sweet potato is tender. Add reserved chicken and corn; simmer 10 minutes longer. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve with rice.

Cut in half, remove seeds and string with a large spoon, peel and dice. Or you can bake the pumpkin whole in a roasting pan at 375 F for about 1 hour, or until it can be easily pierced with a knife. Allow to cool; remove seeds and string, and scoop out flesh with a spoon. You may use prebaked or canned pumpkin in this recipe too.
