Of course you can always make homemade chili & my family has certainly made plenty of it. Here's one recipe my uncle made that actually won a competition at his workplace called "Kyle's Sweatin' Chili":

  • 1 green pepper
  • 1lb ground Italian sausage
  • 1lb ground beef
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 28 oz. can crushed tomatoes in puree
  • 15 oz. can red kidney beans (undrained)
  • 1/2 cup French's Classic Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 (1 1/4 oz.) pkgs of McCormick's chili seasoning mix
  • Cook beef & onion in nonstick pot until meat is browned then drain.
  • Stir in remaining ingredients. Heat to boiling & simmer for 15 min.

Or if you want something a little milder, my mom loves to make Chicken Taco Chili

  • 1 can of black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 can of kidney beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 can of corn drained
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 packet of chicken taco seasoning
  • Red pepper flakes and salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 28oz can diced tomatoes with chiles
  • 1 8oz can of tomato sauce
  • 3 or 4 chicken breasts
  • 1 diced onion
  • Put all ingredients in crockpot & cook on low for 8 hours.

However you wish to celebrate National Chili Day is entirely up to YOU, just make sure to have something to cool your mouth off.
