101 Chili Recipes from Around the Web

by Erin, The $5 Dinner Mom on November 9, 2012

I’m on a mission here y’all.

Our family loves chili…for several reasons. It’s one of the few “soups” that I know that all the boys will eat (even if one still picks around any beans), it’s generally very inexpensive to make, and it makes us all feel warm and cozy inside.

So that brings me to my mission…gather 101 Chili Recipes from around the web. Of course, the best place to gather these is on Pinterest…because then we can all share. And it can be your “go-to resource” for all things chili!

I’ve started a board called “101 Chili Recipes” and it already has a WIDE variety of different chilis featured…but it needs more. About 60ish more.


So this is where I need your help…

  • Check out the 101 Chili Recipes (it’s on the top row!)
  • See what recipes are there (and that you might want to add to future meal plan…chili is also an easy “dump and simmer” kind of meal that’s perfect for the busy holiday season)
  • And if you have a favorite chili recipe that’s not already on the board, leave the link in the comments below and I’ll get it added to the board!

I cannot complete this mission without all of your help, and I’m so grateful for it!

Happy Chili-ing!

I generally don’t like “traditional” chili… I like white chilis and if I go red, its usually veg (love zucchini and yellow squash in my chilis) or turkey.
Cooking light had a 30 top rated chili article that has many of my favorites and definitely something for everyone. :]
Chicken Chili with Pesto – for something a little different
Cincinnati Turkey Chili – chili over noodles!
White Turkey Chili with White Beans
Chicken Green Chili with White Beans
Turkey and Bean Chili
Three Bean Vegetarian Chili – Cooking Light
Quinoa and Roasted Pepper Chili
Pork and Hominy Chili – love hominy in a chili, wish I could find my favorite white one though
