Happy Halloween!!

on October 31, 2015

How many of you have traditions that you like to stick to!!  One of ours has always been..Chili on Halloween!  Whether it’s just the two of us..or more!  It definitely freezes well!  The following recipe my husband and I (mostly him) came up with years ago….I have slowly been changing it up a bit the last couple of years!!!


2 pounds Organic, grass fed ground beef

1 pound Organic free-range ground turkey

2 cans organic diced tomatoes

2 or three cans of chili beans..kidney beans…pinto beans… your preference!

1 large chopped onion

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

2 tablespoons Worcestershire (Lea and Perrins)

1 tsp. paprica

1 tablespoon cumin

1 tsp. celery salt

1 tsp. dry mustard

1 of each…yellow and orange peppers, chopped

Either 2 teaspoons (or to taste) of chili powder or 3 chili packets…your preference!

2 tsp. pumpkin spice

1 can organic pumpkin

Brown meat…add all ingredients to your crockpot and simmer for at least 6 hours!  I always make mine a day ahead, simmer a bit, and then simmer the next day.  Always seems to be better the next day as all of the ingredients meld together!  Optional…top with chopped avocado and/or shredded cheese!

Anyway, I hope you enjoy this!!!
