35 Chili Recipes To Kick Start Fall

I don’t know about you, but chili is definitely one of my many favorite fall foods. I love pumpkin, I love apples, I love all the funky looking squashes – there really are so many fall foods to love aren’t there?

Fall doesn’t officially start for another week, but I have already started craving chili as I’m sure some of you have too. There’s nothing like a pot of chili bubbling on the stovetop on a lazy Saturday or Sunday afternoon, while football is playing in the background. I made this season’s first pot of chili earlier in the week and am looking forward to many more…especially after browsing all of my favorite blogs for new ideas. My stomach is officially growling…
