Nothing is better on a day with wintry weather than a nice big bowl of hot chili. This day in age chili isn’t just meat and beans. I’m sharing with you my personal chili to-make list. These creative and spectacular takes on the traditional chili, as we know and love will send your taste buds into a riptide of excitement! I can’t wait to start making these. Chili Week anyone? Let’s dig in!


Mango Black Bean Chipotle Coke Chili – The sweetness of the mango and coke pair perfectly with the smokiness of the paprika & chipotle peppers. I mean, what’s better than sweet & spicy?

Creamy Cheesy White Chicken Chili – A southwest take on chicken chili. Who can argue with all this cheese?

Pork Chili Verde – A healthy and light option. (I’ve made this recipe but with chicken, and it was definitely a crowd favorite!)

Sweet Fire Chili – A spicy option with sweet potatoes! Like I need an excuse to cook with sweet potatoes…

Black Bean & Quinoa Chili – A vegetarian option. And there’s a secret ingredient. Shhhh…

Buffalo Chicken and Bean Chili – Love buffalo chicken dip? Then you must try this indulgent, and healthy, chili!

Spicy Mole Chili – There’s chocolate in this recipe. Need I say more?

Hawaiian Chicken Chili – Pineapples add a sweet element to a normally spicy and hearty chili. Ohhhh the flavors!

Braised Short Rib & Bacon Chili – I love that the typical ground beef, turkey or chicken was used in this hearty recipe. Change it up! And bacon!

Sweet Potato Chorizo Chili w/ Poblano-Avocado Crema and Goat Cheese – Long name. It takes a little longer to make this chili because of the crema, but I’ve been told it’s SO worth it.


Well, there you have it. 10 recipes of “not your traditional” chili. 10 days of delicious, tummy warming and satisfying chili.


Stay warm my friends!
