Hunter's Sweet 'n Spicy Chili

Guiltless Back to School Chili

“Now, I've found a recipe that gives me the hearty chili goodness without all of the guilt, fat, HEAT and calories. However, you can make this with hamburger/pork and beans and it will be great! For me, this is just how I like it. Serve with a crisp white or mellow red wine and a crusty loaf of French bread.” - Allison

Quick Pinto Bean Chicken Chili

“This quick and easy chili recipe is packed with flavor from the fresh vegetables and the typical chili seasonings. We loved the "something different" smoked paprika adds to the chili. Rotel gives it a nice kick and will be the perfect dinner to warm the family on a cold night. Using deli chicken makes this chili a cinch to throw together for an easy weeknight meal.” - Kitchen Crew

Your family will definitely be coming back for seconds for this guilt-free chicken dinner.” - Kitchen Crew

Krissy's Taco Chili Supreme

“This taco inspired chili definitely has a delicious southwestern flair. Substituting ground beef for turkey, lightens up the meal and makes the chili a bit healthier (if you're looking for a healthy recipe). We loved the suggestion of serving this with tortilla chips; it makes it more like a cowboy salsa. Add a little cheese and sour cream (if you're not worried about calories) and you have an awesome easy meal!” - Kitchen Crew

Creamy Chicken, Lime and White Bean Chili

“This is a cross between chicken tortilla soup and white bean chili and dished up in clay bowls that my dad used to serve up roasted oysters from the grill in. :) The white beans give your palate a sense of chili, while the spices and crushed tortilla chips offer a sense of chicken tortilla soup.” - Jennifer

Believe I will give the Super Bowl Chili a try out of this list. We love to make Skyline Chili and we all have our own favorite chili recipe stashed away somewhere. Ours is made with Pork 'n Beans.
