A hot spicy chili is the sign of autumn in our family. This is the dish of Halloween when a crowd of happy goblins arrive at your door with their proud parents just prior to trick-or-treat to break bread together. The rich, red, aromatic, chunky scoops of chili on top of a bed of white or brown rice gives instant energy to the trick-or-treaters about to scope out the best house for candy and treats. This recipe can be made ahead and stored for up to a week in the refridgerator or packaged airtight and frozen for up to 6 months. It tastes better the next day so make a lot to share!
