As the weather becomes more gloomy my desire to sit inside, curl up under a blanket and watch Netflix all day grows increasingly strong. Honestly, I prefer to do these things even when the weather outside IS nice but that’s beside the point. The point is, when the weather is cold there is no greater meal than a warm bowl of chili. Whether you like a traditional beef chili or you’re more into a vegetarian chili, we’ve got it all for you!

First up we’ve got a classic Texas Chili. It has three different kinds of beans in it and you’ll really taste all of the strong flavors. It’s the toppings that really make this chili though. Not only does the recipe use shredded cheddar cheese and sour cream but also Fritos, which will add a nice crunchy texture. Texas forever!
