National Chili Day celebrates this easy-to-make meal, and we have recipes that will hit the spot for everyone! Chili is a warm, hearty dish that is easy to pull together. Chili is packed with healthy protein, fiber, and vitamins, one of our favorite things to whip up during winter. Combine all ingredients in a crockpot before you leave for work, set on low, and come home to a great meal!
When is National Chili Day?
A fabulous national holiday that happens every year on the fourth Thursday in February that celebrates chili of all kinds. National Chili Day was designed to encourage every one of us to eat heart-healthy beans.
Healthy, Hearty National Chili Day Recipes
Crafted with a mix of beans, spices, honey, and beer, this Sweet, Spicy Chili is a nutrient-dense and yummy meal. Although you could swap out the veggie crumbles for ground turkey, beef, or shredded chicken, this recipe is vegan! Add your favorite toppings, like avocado or shredded cheese, to make this meal special.
If you want something equally as filling, but more traditional than our Sweet Spicy Honey Chili, try our Turkey Chili. Turkey is lean, high in protein, and more environmentally friendly than beef or pork. This chili would also be delicious if made with just a mix of beans or veggie crumbles instead of the turkey.
Sweet Potato Chili
This Sweet Potato Chili is an unusual take on the ordinarily bean-based stew. The sweet potatoes give a rich, hearty texture to the chili, while the blend of spices forms a smoky sweetness that is delectable. This dish is vegetarian, but you can add ground turkey or beef if you desire.
White Chicken Chili
Our latest White Chicken Chili will warm up any cold winter evening at home and satisfy your hunger.
If you are looking for ideas on what to serve with your chili, our Amazing Southern Cornbread makes a great companion to any chili dish and will not disappoint you or your family!
The idea behind beer bread is not far different from cornbread. The leavening agent is beer. Give Beer Bread a try with your chili, it makes a great companion to any chili dish and will not be disappointing!
Don’t forget the Skinny Margarita Recipe; National Chili Day would not be the same without them.
