It’s that time of year again, bone chilling weather and NFL playoffs. The perfect time for steamy hot and hearty chili. Whether you like your chili with beans or without, with turkey, chicken, ground beef or chuck, scorchingly hot or mild, a big bowl of chili is wonderfully satisfying on a cold winter day. Here’s a list of chili recipes on Simply Recipes:

And here are some wonderful chili recipes on favorite food blogs from around the web:

Hint: If you find yourself trying to eat chili that is just too spicy hot, you can cool it off a bit with some sour cream or avocados. The fat molecules in cream and avocados absorb the capsaicin that is responsible for the spicy burning sensation of hot chilis. Chili is great on its own or served with rice or with some good Southern corn bread. Do you have a favorite cold-weather chili recipe? If so please let us know about it in the comments.

    I’ve been using the one posted below for quite some time, and with great success. Very complex flavors, including coffee, cocoa and beer. Better if prepared a day in advance. I use half the beans, sugar and hot peppers called for (people can can always add more later if they like their chili “bean-ier”, sweeter or hotter).

    Forgot to mention…

    After researching chili cook-off recipe winners…Texas chili blogs…and all things “chili” over the last few years, I discovered one ingredient that 99% of the winners had in common – this amazing brand of chili powder called Gebhardt’s. They don’t offer it in the Northeast where I live, but thank goodness for relatives in Texas ;)

    Yup – it’s THAT good :)

    Thanks for the tip Jonathan! ~Elise

    It IS totally chili season. Your recipes are amazing!

    I just did chili 2 ways in a slow cooker for a work lunch – A spicy chicken “white” chili with green chilis & peppers and a classic Texas red that I cheated a bit with and while there was no tomato I did use kidney beans. :)

    I *heart* chili this time of year!

    White chili? Who knew? Although chili to me is classical New Mexican red or green, I still love to try other chili recipes. Thanks for the inspiration.

    My personal favorite is the Chili Con Carne.
    The last time I ate it was…well…I can’t remember, but it was way back.
    Thanks for bringing up great memories!
