I don’t know about you, but it sure hasn’t felt much like winter round these parts. It’s very odd, but here we are, past the middle of January, and we’ve only had two light dustings of snow. And the majority of days have been above the freezing mark. I am not complaining, mind you, because last year we had enough snow to last a lifetime and it was miserable. And surely next year, we will be hit hard again, just to remind us that we do live in New England, after all. But for now, I am enjoying it, getting outside for runs and not having to clear our long driveway.
I’ve been planning a chili round-up for a while, but since it hasn’t been that cold, I haven’t been craving comfort food the way I usually do. This past weekend, however, was pretty bitter. And of course my thoughts automatically turned to soups and stews and chilis. I adore chili, with it’s thick, spicy broth. We definitely have our all-time favourite chili, our Turkey Chili Verde, in this house, but there is so much you can do to vary the flavours and textures. Almost any chili is a hit in this family. So I called upon my friends to send me their chili links, because it’s fun to see what other people like in their chili. ENJOY!
And if you have a great chili recipe, link it up below. I can always use more ideas for chili!
