'Tis the season for warm, hearty chili. Basically, October through April is Soup/Chili Season for me. So I'm planning on experimenting with different types of soup and chili all winter long. Today's post focuses on the latter of the two.
But what exactly is chili? And how is it different from soup? To start, the definition of chili is, “a thick sauce of meat and chilies.” I think that’s a little specific, but to me, chili is more stew-like than soupy, usually has at least one type of bean, and tends to be on the spicier side of life.
Enough with the definitions. Let’s get to the recipes. I compiled a list of 10 chili recipes that look killer. I’ve actually made a few of them, and I can guarantee they’re delish.
- Cha Cha White Chicken Chili: Super spicy, heart-warming, and unique.
