15 Hearty chili recipes for fall to warm your home

Fall is my favorite time of the year. It cools off just enough to still be pleasant outdoors but doesn’t require me to turn the heater just yet. Instead we warm up inside with good comfort food.

Oh, how I love chili. Just last week I tried a new recipe for some pumpkin chili. I was skeptical at first, but it was delicious! The whole family loved it, but no one was able to guess that the secret ingredient had been pumpkin – score one for mom, right?

Fall is still pretty busy around here. School is in full swing, and all the before and after school clubs are happening. One of my favorite slow cooker recipes are soups. It eleminates standing over a hot stove, and really helps during those busy fall days. It’s really nice to come home and serve up a bowl of comfort that you only spent  5-10 minutes on. It’s comfort food at it’s finest!

White Chicken Chili Recipes

The first time I had a white chili I was sold on it. I remember looking at it and thinking, this shouldn’t be white. It should be red and brown right? Then I tasted it, and I realized what I had been missing all my life. When you add chicken and white beans, suddenly this homesteading comfort food became classy. Not every white chili has to have chicken in it, but most do. You could just exchange the beans, leave out the meat and make it a vegetarian dish. However you choose to eat it though, you’ll find it just as comforting as traditional recipes.

Vegetable Chili Recipes

No guarantee these are all vegetarian, but what makes them special is the emphasis on different vegetables. Sweet Potato is turning into a popular root veggie to feature in soups, and it’s the perfect fall ingredient. Pumpkin is another fabulous ingredient that everyone loves as soon as fall hits. Are you on the pumpkin craze? I generally don’t like it, but in these recipes, it adds a layer of flavor that is absolutely fabulous!
