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.

    We love Cheese Soup and share it with our neighbors ALWAYS the first time we have snow. EASY! 2 cups each of carrots, celery, onions, cabbage, and potatoes (I get the carrots and celery cooking as I’m cutting up the other vegetables. I add potatoes last). 5 cups water. 4 chicken bouillon cubes (optional). 1 stick butter (optional). Cook until vegetables are tender. Add 12 ounces American cheese (or Velveeta) and allow to melt just before serving.

    A fabulous post, even by your standard.

    But you fail to tell us: who are your picks for this weekend?

    I rarely use a set recipe when I make chili. I kind of make it up as I go along. I always do use some kind of meat. Lately, I’ve been really liking it with ground buffalo meat. It really give the chili a deeper flavor. Sometimes, I throw in a shot of tequila. Other times, some really good unsweetened chocolate, and/or cinnamon. I always put in a little smoky chipotle chili powder too. Hmmm. I’m getting hungry!

    Elise, thanks for including my white chili in this wonderful round-up! With the temperature supposed to hover near zero this weekend here in Chicago, I’ll probably be making at least one of these great recipes.
