Heat the olive oil over medium high in a Dutch Oven or large soup pot.

Add the ground beef to the pot and season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle on the chili powder and cumin.
Cook, breaking up, until no longer pink, about 5-7 minutes.
Lower the heat to medium and stir in the pumpkin puree, diced tomatoes, black beans (if using), beef stock, and adobo sauce.
Cook until heated through, then lower the heat and simmer at least 10 more minutes.
