Chili Recipes for Chilly Winter Days
Chili Recipes for Chilly Winter Days
This week, we got a lot of snow (at least according to Virginia's definition of a lot of snow). As I watched my children sled down the huge hill at our local elementary school, I couldn't help but think about how wet, cold, and ravenous they were going to be when we got home. Thankfully, when I saw the forecast I had planned for this, and had all the makings of a big batch of chili. It was the perfect hot meal on a cold day.
Chili is an excellent meal to make for your own family and to take to others because:
  • Recipes tend to make a ton. Most of my favorite chili recipes make enough for my family and enough to share.
  • Tomato based recipes tend to freeze and reheat well. If you happen to make a large amount that your family can't finish, freeze some in gallon freezer bags and keep it on hand in case you hear of a sudden need.
  • Chili is so customizable; you can find or change most recipes to fit most any dietary requests or requirement.
  • Unlike soup, chili is easy to transport. We recommend these containers to allow for lots of extra room.
  • You can send along a variety of toppings - cheese, sour cream or greek yogurt, green onion, sliced avocado, jalapenos, cilantro, tortilla chips, or Fritos. Don't forget to send along cornbread muffins and/or a simple green salad as a side.
Here are 5 of my favorite chili recipes, perfect for chilly winter days!
