Halloween Chili, It's A Tradition

*Disclosure- I received the mentioned product courtesy of the sponsor for the purpose of this review. All opinions are genuine, based on my experience with the product, and have not been influenced by promotional items.

Can I just tell you how excited I am that Halloween is just a little over a week away? Whoop! Whoop! It's one of my favorite days of the year! Ever since the girls were little, we've been following the same Halloween traditions. The day before, we find a Trunk or Treat to attend. The church down the road usually does one, so we don't have to go far. The day of, my best friend brings her kids to my house and we take them around the neighborhood for candy. Afterwards, we go go to my mother-in-laws for her yearly chili dinner. I've been thinking about Halloween a lot lately, and with that my mind always gravitates towards chili. Why? Because it's yum! And it's tradition. Last week, I decided to curb my craving and made some Chili with Cornbread Topping from Golden Blossom Honey. And, it was just as yummy as what my mother-in-law makes! 


Ingredients
Chili:
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 pound beef cubes, cut into small pieces
4 cloves, garlic, minced
1 cup water
1 tablespoon ground cumin
2 tablespoons chili powder
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
1 (6-ounce) can tomato paste
1 (28-ounce) can diced tomatoes
1 cup onion, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
2 (15-ounce) cans red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
Corn Bread Topping:2 cups cornmeal
2 tablespoons flour
3 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
1 cup milk
2 eggs
1 tablespoon GOLDEN BLOSSOM HONEY
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
sour cream for garnish

    1. If you get it right away, it's not too bad. I learned the hard way never to reheat in the same dish though. That's when it turns into a real chore!

    2. my tip is to use the same technique as with cakes when you oil it and flour it before, but with savoury dishes you use breadcrumbs instead of flour... it gives a lovely crust and doesn't get stuck to the dish itself

    3. You are such a handy kitchen buddy to have around. Love this tip and will be sure to incorporate it in my next casserole dish!

  5. We usually pick up Papa Murphy's pizza. My hubby stays home to hand out candy, while I and my friend bring our kids around the neighborhood. As we are ready to head back, I text hubby to get the oven ready, so that way we have a nice, hot pizza ready within minutes of us walking in the door. :) Easy peasy!!
    The cornbread chili looks amazing. We were just talking about trying to find a good chili recipe the other night...now I have one.

    1. Our Papa Murphy's closed a few years back. Makes me so sad since we really loved their pizza. Seems a lot of our restaurants aren't sticking around here lately. People must not be eating out as often as they once were. Too bad, since it seems I am losing all my favorites :(

  6. We don't have a traditional one. I suppose we should get one. Sometimes I do something in the crock pot to make dinner go quick, but not always.

    1. If we didn't go to the in-laws, I'd do the crock pot too. It would be so nice to already have a hot dinner waiting in the pot as soon as you get in from a cold night out trick-or-treating!

  7. That's different (in a good way). I make my chili in the crockpot, but need to try this next time!

    I didn't know that Trunk or Treat was such a widespread ritual. That's awesome, and sounds really fun. I look forward to pictures of your family's Halloween.
    Have a great week, Theresa.
