Nervous about the arrival of a chilly fall? Make it a chili fall! Summer and sunshine are all well and good, but I’ve been secretly waiting for crisp autumn to settle in. Sure it was hard to say goodbye to flip flops, barbecues, and fresh corn, but their departure makes room for cozy sweaters, tailgates and chili. As the temperature drops and the days shorten, chili is comfort in a bowl. Warm, hearty, full of flavor and spice…it just doesn’t get much better than a steaming bowl of chili on an October afternoon.
