Fruit-and-Nut Chili

Sweet peppers, fragrant garlic, and an aromatic blend of spices (including curry powder and cinnamon) make this chili flavorful. The addition of cocoa powder, almonds, and tart, crisp apples makes it uniquely enticing. Almonds, like all nuts, are susceptible to rancidity due to their high fat content. For optimal shelf life, store almonds in a air-tight container in the freezer, for 3-6 months.

Family-Style Chili and Corn Bread Dumplings

Hearty and flavorful, this chili will warm you on even the most blustery of winter evenings. What really sets this dish apart, however, is the brilliant addition of cheesy cornbread dumplings. When buying sweet peppers for the chili, choose those that are firm, heavy for their size, and have shiny, vibrantly-colored skin.

Two-Tomato Stew Chili

Bright and tangy sun-dried tomatoes, sweet peppers and juicy golden raisins elevate this chili to new heights. Don't feel pressured to use expensive cuts of beef in every meal. Stews and chilis offer the perfect opportunity to use cheaper cuts, as the cooking process easily breaks up connective tissue. Look for well-marbled cuts for the richest flavor.
