Halloween Chili Party | Print |

What’s not to like about fall? Fresh fruits and vegetables literally tumble out of produce aisles and farmer’s markets. It’s all about abundance and what’s in season. Pumpkins, for instance, take center stage on the back porch (and kitchen) just as the air crisps and daylight dwindles.

 

Still, we’re not at all ready to hole-up indoors. We relish this time in the garden—to harvest the last tomatoes, squash and fall greens, to plant bulbs, and, yes, even to rake leaves. Once indoors, we’re in the mood for stews, soups, spicy tacos and hearty, chile-infused chili. It’s the season to turn from the grill to the stove to create comforting food, sharing the bounty with friends and family.

This Halloween, invite the grown-ups inside for a bowl of this stunning chili and a wedge of warm cornbread while the kids trick or treat. We’ll be warm inside—no matter what the winds blow in.
