Two Ways to National Chili Day

national chili day

Tomorrow (Feb. 25) is National Chili Day; and since that’s one of my favorite meals to make and eat, I thought I might celebrate by sharing two great chili recipes. The first one is my own traditional recipe and the second is from last month’s Real Kitchen mom. Katie’s chipotle chicken chili is a great alternative to the regular stuff I’ll be cooking up in my kitchen tomorrow; so if you’re looking for something new to try, you might want to give it a go. Of course, if you want to share your own favorite chili recipe, e-mail me or leave it in the comments. I would love to see how you make this national crowd pleaser in your own home.
