Chili for a Chilly Evening

It is now mid-October and we’ve officially hit the 60’s here in SoCal. I am so excited for the cooler weather; we’ve been going on family walks wearing hoodies, and Zemirah got some new boots that she’s obsessed with. We went to the pumpkin patch and picked out a pumpkin to carve, we’re planning our Halloween costumes, the holidays are right around the corner; it is an exciting time of year!

It is also time to start making lots of soups, stews, and THIS delicious chili! Zemirah loved it so much she was happily humming after every bite, and my husband walked in from work, saw the chili on the stove, and exclaimed, “you certainly do love me!”

So, basically, if you make this chili, you will have a quiet dinner filled only with hums, and your family will be reassured of your love for them 😉 Also, it’s delicious and healthy and warms your insides!
