Chill Chili. It's what's for Halloween.

The Headlines:

Make this chili.

It's the easiest recipe you'll ever find.

That's why I call it the CHILL Chili.

I love chili.  Who doesn't really?  I mean, it's good stuff.  And it just makes you feel like fall.  Even when it's 90 degrees still.  Like here in Arizona!  In any case, it's just the perfect thing to eat on Halloween.  Especially if you have a big group coming over.  In fact, if you haven't a clue what to serve Friday.  Problem solved.  You're serving this.

There are so so many chili recipes out there.  Like… so so so many.  And most of them are all good.  Each has their own little tweak to make it special.  The Chill Chili is special because while it is very good - it took you maybe all of 3 minutes to "make!"  Yep, in my book - too many steps and ingredients can be very overrated.  My friend gave this recipe to me last week and I made it like 2 days later.

The Chill Chili.

Here's what you need:
1 can white corn
1 can golden corn
1 can black beans
1 can kidney beans
1 can cannellini beans
1 64 ounce Pace Picante Mild Salsa

Here's what you do:
Drain and rinse all the beans/corn… place in crockpot.  Add salsa.  Turn crock pot on high for 4 hours. Serve with all the usual: shredded cheese, onions, tortilla chips, sour cream.  The tortilla chips, in my opinion (and cheese of course), makes this dish SING!

Optional: Meat.  Briefly brown and season ground beef if you want to add it to the mix.  Then throw it in the slow cooker too.

Is that crazy easy or what?  Totally my kind of recipe.  It may not win an award or anything but it will get the job done.  Wait a second… I take that back.  My friend did say she won a chili award with it once, no joke!

Here's my daughter eating the leftovers a couple days later.  I think it may even be better after it sits - the flavors really settle into each other.

Yep, this recipe rules and it's easier than taking candy from a Zombie Queen.  Ha.  Ha.  Ha.  Happy Halloween!


  1. This is my kind of recipe! I will have to give it a try!

  2. I need to try this--I'm lazy...... I normally just us the stuff from the can. hahaha

  3. Yum! I LOVE chili- especially during the cool days of fall. Thanks for the recipe.
