When I received the 101 Stovetop Suppers cookbook, I knew that this Hunting Cabin Chili recipe was going to be the recipe I prepared. Chili is one of my favorite fall recipes because it can be served so many different ways.

In my home, we serve chili on top of rice.  It’s equally as delicious over pasta, with cornbread or topped with corn chips and cheese.

 I have a friend who likes to eat chili topped with sour cream and chopped scallions.  However you like to eat chili, you need to try this Hunting Cabin Chili recipe soon.

I love that this can be prepared in one pot or pan. That means less clean up time for me which is always a good thing.

  6. This really sounds yummy!  I really like chili.  All types of recipes.    This recipe looks like it would be quick and easy to fix too.  
  7. This looks delicious! Loving the addition of salsa. Wondering though - does it really taste like chili without any chili powder or seasonings?
  8. WOOHOO! It's chili season! I just grabbed all of my chili ingredients yesterday.  I might just tweak my usual recipe a bit.  I'm always looking for ways to live it up.  I don't normally add green peppers and I love the idea of adding salsa.  You reminded me that I forgot the jalapeno's for the jalapeno cheese corn bread.  I might just be serving it over rice or pasta, as well, so I can increase the longevity of the chili.  No matter how much I make it always seems to go so fast.  I could eat chili year round, though.
  9. Mmmm! Looks so tasty!  I have a recipe I have been using for years, but I am definitely going to give this one a try!  I like the idea of adding the salsa! Thanks for sharing!
  10. Yum! I've never thought to add salsa before, but I have added Rotel. It's a little too hot for my kiddos, though, so I don't add it as often.
  11. I bet my husband would LOVE this! I have actually never made chili. This is one of the only things my hubby will make himself. But, this looks like a great recipe to try and switch it up!
