Video Still bowlofred.jpgOctober has always been chili month for me—of course to me, most anytime is chili time. With tailgating abounding and all the “busy-ness” of fall about, chili is a perfect food. It is easy to make, just takes simmering time—a perfect food for cool evenings or weekend afternoons.

Once you have made chili, you can make so many wonderful “planned overs” such as pizza, enchiladas, burritos, stuffed baked potatoes and so on. In my new, 2nd edition of Chili Madness that just came out last year, I dedicated a whole chapter to ways with leftover chili.

This month, I am going to give you my all-time favorite chili recipe, “Bowl o’Red” and an innovative chili recipe, my yummy Corn and Bacon Chowder-Chili and an encore for chili-- Upside Down Chili Pie and my special Blue Corn Parfait Bread. To top it off, I am including the world’s best Lemon Bars, a great traveler. Each of these dishes can be made ahead of time and even frozen without suffering. And they make for a wonderful Tail Gate party.
