Dad’s Tavern Chili

Dad’s Tavern Chili by Salad Foodie

As an adolescent I was commissioned by my dad to make a huge pot of chili for his tavern weekly, and I earned fifty cents a batch doing so! (This was before the era of food safety regulation and inspection - I just made it in our home kitchen!) Dad had taught me how to make his chili, and everyone agreed it was in a class of its…

Chicken Chili by Salad Foodie

Classic comfort foods can be made healthier without giving up on good taste. Case in point - this Chicken Chili recipe.

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot!

Chili con Carne - Stove Top or Crock Pot! by Salad Foodie

Hurray for fall and chili time! This makes a batch for about 5 adult servings, but there’s no such thing as having too much chili. You can freeze leftovers or just double the recipe and freeze the extra for busy week nights. I try to make a day ahead to deepen the flavors.
