I love chilis. They make the entire apartment as you cook them (especially if they are in a slow cooker) and they’re good comfort food (especially on days like this where we’re having Frakenstorm). This chili from Life as a Lofthouse is no exception. I made it on Friday afternoon and left for a while to go and help C with preparing the Halloween party on Saturday night. When I came back, my entire apartment smelled delicious. I could actually smell the chili as I was coming up the staircase to my apartment. There’s nothing like that, let me tell you!
I used the “hot and spicy” taco seasoning and Hannaford brand ranch seasoning mix. The hot and spicy was good, but I like my chili’s spicy so I added a little more chili powder (probably closer to 1/2 teaspoon). Still wasn’t hot enough for me when I ate it for lunch today, but it was still delicious. The ranch seasoning really made this chili though.
