It may not be as cold as it normally is in December — hey, I can’t say I hate everything about global warming — but it’s still below 50 degrees F most days, and in my world, that’s an excuse to eat and drink all things hot and delicious. It’s no coincidence that these foods are also easy as hell to make — a dream for lazy people like me who also happen to be flavor snobs. Sorry, but what’s the point of eating it if it doesn’t taste good?
That’s never the problem with chili, which happens to be one of the easier, healthier and most incredibly flavor-packed winter foods. Whether you’re in the mood for creamy chicken, smoky BBQ, healthy vegan or loaded cheesy chili, there’s something for everyone in this roundup of 13 excellent recipes. Pro tip: Make a huge batch so you can enjoy it all week (or even month, if you’re smart about how you portion it out).
