bread for you family! Winter can brings a cold chill into the house
at times, so what better way to warm and spice things up!

and corn bread recipe. The kitchen will also be a warm place for you

Winter Chili Recipe Ingredients

• 1 finely chopped onion
• 3 finely chopped garlic cloves
• 2 piece of bacon cut crosswise into pieces
• 2 tablespoons of chili powder
•2 cans of cannelloni, pinto or red kidney beans

• 1 ½ teaspoons of dried crushed oregano
• 1 ½ teaspoons of paprika
• 1/2 teaspoon of fresh ground pepper
• 3 cups of water
• Coarse salt
• 3/4 cup of Monterey Jack Cheese or cheddar (shredded)
• 2 tablespoons of fine cornmeal
• 1 ½ cups of chopped winter squash or zucchini
• 1 ½ cups of frozen or fresh kernel corn


Winter Chili Recipe Directions 

The fine cornmeal is use to thicken the chili
and the bacon adds a smoky flavor to this bean-based chili. You can
also serve lime wedges on the side for an extra bit of garnish flair

Begin by cooking the bacon in a chili pot over
medium heat until browning happens. Begin to add the onion, garlic,
paprika, pepper, oregano, beans and salt into the chili pot. Stir
this mixture occasionally for about 10-15 minutes. It is good to
mash up the beans a bit.

 Mix the fine cornmeal with water, corn, squash
or zucchini and bring the pot to boil. Begin to reduce the heat and
keep stirring until the chili become thick and the veggies are
softer. If you find that your chili is a bit dry you can add water
to make it most again as well as many spices to jazz it up! Start
serving your winter chili and dress up each bowl with some cheddar
cheese.  Add some
freshly baked cornbread
, and your
meal is complete!

As a lover of veggies and chili, I thought this
recipe sounded intriguing. With the addition of zucchini and corn,
this recipe is a winner. It is very light on the meat element,
making it the perfect addition to our chili repertoire. I prefer a
softer bean in this type of recipe and decided to use Pinto beans
instead of Kidney, since the skins on Kidney beans seem to be a
little more firm. I also prefer thyme to oregano. Thank you for
