Top 10 Ways (I’ve Found) to Eat Chili

Chili has got to be one of the easiest, yet tastiest meals to make for the family. Throw it in the crockpot and it’ll be done by dinnertime. It’s also super versatile, because instead of just beans, tomatoes, onions and minced meat, there are plenty of ways to make it even healthier and more nutrient dense. Try making chili with shredded chicken, adding in seafood like shrimp, or just adding in a greater variety of different types of beans and vegetables (like kidney, pinto, chickpeas, black beans, mushrooms, bell peppers, sweet potato, zucchini, eggplant, carrots or butternut squash)! The extra cooked vegetables and beans make great finger foods for your toddler and child. Plus, here are at least 10 ways that I’ve found so far that one can eat chili:

  1. With tortilla chips
  2. With cornbread
  3. With rice or dinner rolls/fresh baguette slices/toasted garlic bread
  4. With a baked white or sweet potato
  5. With a tortilla wrap or in a soft/hard taco shell (feel free to add in fresh veggies and rice!)
  6. On a hot dog (think of chili dogs)
  7. As part of a taco salad
  8. with melted cheese and tortilla chips like nachos
  9. As a filling in sandwiches
  10. With pasta noodles

Hope these suggestions gives you new ideas and ways to reinvent this familiar dish! And feel free to comment with other ways to eat chili that you’ve found!
