When is  National Chili Month? October - National Chili Day is February 25.

How is this holiday celebrated?
It's celebrated by enjoying the many ways to eat chili all through the month of October. A great way to enjoy this holiday is by having a chili eating party.

Food Ideas for your Chili Party:
Sandwiches: If your planning a lunch or buffee, then think about serving sandwiches to go along with the chili. It seems that the favorite sandwiches to eat with chili is: grill cheese, bean & cheese boretoes, peanut butter and honey

Chili Chili Chili!
It doesn't matter if it's hot and spicy chili, turkey chili, beef chili, bean chili, beanless chili, white chili, red chili, green chili, vegetarian chili, meatless chili or 15 bean chili, chili is hellishly warming to the soul and a true favorite meal during cold winter months. I don't have to even say it but chili recipes are a dime a dozen and no one stews is the same.
See: Chili Con Carne Recipes

It seems when the weather turns off cold.... that's when the chili pots are dusted off and pulled out of the back of our kitchen cabinets.  Not often do we eat chili during the hot summer months except for on our hot dogs. Nope, not many of us will shy away from a good chili dog- but you can bet that when winter hits, we make up for not eating chili in the summer by eating it several times during the winter.  It's a true favorite! When we see the snow start to fall, the chili pot starts to simmering. (October is also National Vegetarian Month & vegetarian chili is a popular too)

October is also National  Sun Dried Tomato Month
October has been picked for National Chili Month in the United States. Did you know that October is also National Sun Dried Tomato month as well? Yep it is. There are those people who say you shouldn't put tomatoes in chili just like you find those who say you shouldn't put beans in your chili either, but I say try sun dried tomatoes in your chili this month. It's delicious!

Fire-fighters and Chili
Interesting enough, firefighters and chili just seem to go together.  Each and every year you hear of more and more Firehouse Cook-offs that are competing over the best Firehouse Chili between fire-stations.  Most all of these cook-offs are put on to build funds for the fire station or for a local cause that they are supporting for the year.  Support your local firemen and be a part of these great cook-off contests.  There a lot of fun and you will eat some of the best chili you have ever put in your mouth!

Harvest Chili
I love to cook what I've named
"Harvest Chili." I usually fix it every Fall during the months of October and November when the fall flavors are so prevalent. The base of my Harvest Chili is pumpkin or butternut squash and it's soooo creamy and good. Give my recipe a try- I think you will love it!

We are asked all the time if we will share our personal food photos that belong to us here at www.gone-ta-pott.com. Friends we don't mind if you use our chili photos on you website, blog or article but please be kind and give us credit by giving a link back to this page.
