Chili Recipes You Can Count On

Chili Recipes You Can Count On

Living in New Hampshire, we know that snow and cold are part of the deal in the winter months. Although we don’t always like it, we tolerate the chill and we get by with the use of our slow cookers to cook these chili recipes you can count on! For me, warm bowls of chili make the snowstorms and the cold all worth it!

Creamy White Chicken Chili

Recipe from: The Chunky Chef

I had never tried a white chili before testing out this recipe last week, and it did not disappoint! The best part about this recipe is that it was slow cooker friendly, and has a creamy flavor thanks to the cream cheese and the half and a half. I used the cream and a splash of almond milk since that’s what I had on hand. I also added in some black beans that I had leftover from taco night and some chopped scallions.

Serve this up in big bowls with a large selection of toppings, including shredded cheddar cheese, freshly-diced jalapeno, chopped cilantro, and lime wedges. I also put out a bowl of Sweet Corn Tortilla Chips by Off the Cob for just the right amount of crunch.

My Best Chili

Recipe from: Bakerita

Growing up my mom always made her chili with a mix of ground beef and hot sausage. So this recipe really reminds me of that one, plus kicks it up a notch with the addition of bacon! This recipe is made with lean ground beef, sausage, and bacon. And it contains just the right amount of heat with its mix of spices. In my opinion, chili is served best with a dollop of sour cream and shredded cheddar cheese, and tortilla chips for dipping. This batch of chili is no exception!

Vegetarian Chili With 3 Beans

Recipe from: Healing Tomato

Don’t forget to show some love to the vegetarians in your life with this delicious 3-bean chili! This recipe is flexible too – add in one of these meats (ground turkey, ground beef, or sausage) and other bean combinations. Navy beans, pinto beans, or garbanzo beans would be good in this chili as well. This vegetarian chili can be split in half. Add meat to one half for the carnivores in your life, then you only have to make one recipe.

The moral of the story is, no matter where you live, chili is easy to make and a delicious fan favorite. Give one of these chili recipes you can count on a try for your next chili fiesta!
