Chili may be a perfect winter meal! It has loads of veggies and protein, can be made in advance and you can customize it to fit your family’s tastes. My family loves loaded chili – a variety of beans, big chunks of veggies and they love to load on the toppings. (Not to mention, it’s a great way to sneak veggies into picky kids! Try adding diced zucchini or eggplant. They’ll never know!)
We have a secret to amazing chili… WINE! Many chili recipes use a beer, water or tomato sauce as a base. But adding wine really turns up the volume on what is normally a pretty mundane dish!
