I know that a lot of people eat chili all year round, but I just can't bring myself to eat it in months like June or July or August. That's why I'm glad the weather has finally turned a little cooler. It's not cold yet, but it's certainly chili (ha!).
So it's good that October is National Chili Month. I've been eating a lot of turkey chili the past few years (here's one good recipe). I top it with shredded cheddar cheese and use those "scoop" shaped tortilla chips to eat it. But it's always good to make your own chili, especially if you like it hot. I love cornbread with my chili, though I've never had it on top. Or maybe you can make a nice vegetarian chili, since it's Vegetarian Awareness Month. RecipeZaar has several different chili recipes, including White Chili and Budget Busting (and Healthy) Chili.
