It’s getting to be that chilly time of year again! Leaves are falling and the air is crisp…let’s celebrate chili!
Chili is a staple in our house, especially during this time of year, and I always have a batch frozen in the freezer ready to pull out for any impromptu occasion.
After trick-or-treating, top off your evening with a real treat! Make ahead of time, and it will be ready for all mummies, daddies, and little goblins! To make your chili extra savvy, top with a ghostly dollop of sour cream or yogurt. Kids will love it!
