I don’t really have a favorite season.  I love change, so I guess that my favorite is when seasons are changing more than any one season.  That being said, I love fall and when the weather starts getting cooler.  Growing up, my dad always made chili in the fall and winter. Now, when things cool off, there are few things I start to crave more than a good bowl of chili (thanks, Dad).  What better way to eat chili than curled up on the couch in some great loungewear?  Right, I couldn’t think of one either.  The first fall after Nick and I got married, I was determined to find the perfect chili recipe.  I enjoy cooking but in my first year of marriage I lacked a certain level of skill in the kitchen.  I am not ashamed to say that I was turned on to this recipe because it was so simple.  And I keep going back to this recipe for the same reason.

The recipe above is straight from the Food Network, but I have a couple ways that I like to customize the recipe now.

1.  I skip the onion. I don’t like onion. So if I get to pick, it’s not in there.

2.  I’m not a fan of beef, so I like to substitute frozen veggie crumbles for the ground beef.  To be honest, the recipe doesn’t entirely require meat, so you could just skip the meat altogether.
