Spiced Chili in Bread Bowls

Do you want a fantastic, spicy chili recipe? Spiced Chili in Bread Bowls is not only fabulous but it’s incredibly easy to make too. It’s made in the slow cooker so you just toss the ingredients into a crockpot. It’s irresistibly mouthwatering whether you actually serve the chili in bread bowls or not. It’s Tex-Mex chili at its best.

I made this chili for our church’s college/young adult kids one Sunday night in February. I served it with Southwestern Spoon Bread and everyone kept going back for multiple servings. It really was terrific. I sprinkled a little Cheddar cheese over top of each serving. While the original recipe called for diced green onions on top, this recipe really didn’t need additional heat.

I’m one of those people who can eat chili almost any time of the year. While it’s perfect for cold, winter nights, I prefer it for lunches! Probably from November to April, I want hot food on the menu. Salads and sandwiches have their place, but I want something hot those months of the year.

As I stated earlier, this is good served in a bread bowl–or not. If you like chili, Spiced Chili in Bread Bowls is marvelous for tailgating parties during the winter months, too. I guarantee this is one comfort food recipe you won’t want to miss out on. Give it a try for Cinco De Mayo. You’ll be glad you did.
