Instructions: Brown the beef in the olive oil with the onion and garlic. Add all the remaining ingredients, except for the corn, the sherry and the pumpkin. Simmer for a 1 hour, covered.
Cut the top off the pumpkin and discard. Scoop out the seeds and stringy membrane, and discard them as well. You could toast the pumpkin seeds in the oven for a snack if you like, but they are not used in this recipe.
