A Fall Chili Dish for Every Personality

Looking for the best fall chili recipe? It’s time to drive the coziness factor into full effect. Oversized sweaters, warm blankets, and—most importantly—comfort food are essential staples for the cooler months. If you’re going to be stuck indoors, a delicious meal is obviously in order.

Chili is one of the great dishes for the fall and winter. It’s hearty, filling, and hits the spot when temperatures are less than pleasing. No rainy Sunday dinner or afternoon spent watching football is complete without a bowl.

Know Your Bowl What Is the Difference Between Cincinnati, Texas, and Classic Chili? Though no one will dispute its taste, the origins of chili are relatively mysterious—except for the fact that it did not come from Mexico like most people believe (even though some of its main ingredients did). Some will argue that immigrants from the Canary Islands who settled in Texas in the 1700s brought along their chili recipes. Then, there is a fable that suggests a nun was inspired to create chili con carne (beans and meat) after the idea came to her in a trance —quite the stroke of luck! Others believe that things got cookin’ in the late 1800s with the creation of chili powder.

Regardless of how chili made its way to America, you just have to be grateful that it did. After all, what’s better than a few scoops for your Saturday lunch? Recipes often call for kidney beans because they amp up the flavors of the spices and take the heat well (and you know things are going to get hot). However, there is the opportunity to get creative and add other beans to the mix, depending on what you’re preparing. Cannellini beans can do the trick as well.

No matter the type of bean, one thing’s for certain: There’s a recipe for everyone. Hungry carnivores and veggie-only eaters will find a chili dish to their liking. Since that’s the case, now is the time to satisfy those winter food cravings. You can heat up the kitchen this season with these myriad of options (or all if you’re feeling adventurous).


Trisha Yearwood Is Releasing A New Cookbook That Is Set To Hit Shelves This Fall

Food Network star Trisha Yearwood is no stranger to the kitchen but while spending time at home during the pandemic, she has branched out from her typical cooking. Stepping out of her comfort zone during this time has been the inspiration for her upcoming cookbook Trisha's Kitchen, which is set to hit shelves this fall.

In a recent interview with PEOPLE, Trisha talked about her upcoming cookbook and some of the foods that got her through the tumultuous year of 2020. She told the outlet that at the beginning of the pandemic, she knew she could make meals with what she had on hand in her home without needing frequent grocery store runs. Items like frozen ground beef, steaks, pizzas, pasta, and canned sauces are some of the staples Trisha always keeps in her kitchen.

Her upcoming cookbook is set to hit shelves on September 28 and will feature all-new recipes, many of which were thought up during lockdown. They use simple steps and ingredients and feature family stories about why the meals are important. In fact, some of the meals that will be featured in Trisha's Kitchen were inspired by her husband Garth Brooks' favorite foods.

A breakfast burger featuring maple hot butter and a French toast bun with a side of hashbrowns is one of the recipes that is totally Garth approved. Another featured recipe, appropriately named Garth's Teriyaki Bowl, is a twist on Garth's favorite meal to order out at his and Trisha's favorite sushi spot. You can preorder Trisha's Kitchen online right now for $30.


Dining In by Alison Roman

Multicolored mani? Check. Fashiony Terry Richardson lighting? Yep. Enviable vintage sunglasses? Right here. The debut cookbook from ace recipe developer (and former Bon Appétit food editor) Alison Roman has all the trappings of trendiness, but crack the cover and you'll find a classic waiting to happen. Unlike highfalutin chefs with secretly bare fridges, Roman actually likes to cook at home, and her recipes occupy that elusive sweet spot—neither basic nor aspirational, that's almost impossible to nail. She promises not to call for rando ingredients you'll never use again, or wax poetic about using three kinds of herbs when one would do—and for the most part, she keeps her promises, with a collection of recipes that make the most of her love of crisp-edged chickpeas, turmeric-stained pickles, anchovy-dosed rib eye, and salty chocolate tart.


Frequently Asked Questions

Why Do You Start Seeds Indoors?

Starting seeds indoors (in seed trays or starter pots) gives your crops a head start on the growing season, which is especially important in regions with a short growing season. Starting seeds indoors also provides young, tender plants a chance to grow in a stable, controlled environment. Outdoors, the unpredictability of rain, drought, frost, low and high temperatures, sunlight, and pests and diseases can take a toll on young plants, especially when they're just getting started. Indoors, you can control these elements to maximize your plants' early growth and give them the best shot at thriving when they are eventually transplanted outdoors.

For most crops that can be started indoors, seeds should be started about 6-8 weeks before your last spring frost date. This gives the plants plenty of time to grow large and healthy enough to survive their eventual transplanting to the garden. Read more about starting seeds indoors here.

Which Seeds Should Be Started Indoors?

Not all vegetables should be started indoors! In fact, most are better off being started directly in the garden (aka "direct-sown"). The crops that should be started indoors are those that are particularly susceptible to cold temperatures or that have a very long growing season and need a head start. These include tender vegetables such as tomatoes, peppers, and eggplant, as well as crops with a long growing season, like broccoli, cauliflower, and brussels sprouts.

Most other crops do best when sown directly into the garden soil. Root crops, including carrots, radishes, and beets, are especially well-suited to being started directly in the garden, since they do not like having their roots disturbed after planting. The same is true for squash and watermelon, though care must be taken to plant them when the soil is warm enough. Read more about direct-sowing seeds here!

How Is Planting for a Fall Harvest Different?

Planting in late summer for a fall harvest has many benefits (soil is already warm, temperatures are cooler, fewer pests). However, the challenge is getting your crops harvested before the winter frosts begin. When we calculate fall planting dates (which are really in the summer), we must account for several factors, such as the time to harvest once the crop is mature and whether a crop is tender or hardy when it comes to frost. The "days to maturity" of a crop and the length of your growing season also factor into whether you start seeds early indoors or directly sow seeds into the ground outside. Note:

  • Warm-weather veggies like beans, corn, squashes, pumpkins, cucumbers, cantaloupe, and watermelons are all sown directly into the ground.
  • Tender heat-loving plants such as tomatoes, peppers, and eggplants take a long time to mature and have a lengthy harvesting period, so we generally don't plant a second round of these crops for fall, as they won't ripen in time. (In regions with mild winters, this may not be the case.) These crops are typically started indoors early in the season and transplanted.
  • Root vegetables (beets, carrots) do not transplant well, so start seeds directly in the soil outside. are also best seeded into the ground do not transplant.
  • Cole crops like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and cabbage could be direct seeded, but because of the heat of mid- and late summer, it's better to start them indoors and then transplant them into the garden.
  • We tend to direct-sow leafy greens such as lettuce, chard, and spinach, though some gardeners will also sow indoors. It depends on your climate.
  • Note that garlic is not included in our planting chart. It's a popular fall crop, but the dates vary wildly based on location and it's really best to gauge garlic planting dates with a soil thermometer. When the soil temperature is 60°F (15.6°C) at a depth of 4 inches, then plant your garlic. We'd advise checking our Garlic Growing Guide for more information.

When Should You Transplant Seedlings?

When seedlings have grown too large for their seed trays or starter pots, it's time to transplant. If it's not yet warm enough to plant outdoors, transplant the seedlings to larger plastic or peat pots indoors and continue care. If outdoor conditions allow, start hardening off your seedlings approximately one week before your last frost date, then transplant them into the garden. Get more tips for transplanting seedlings.

What Is Planting by the Moon?

Planting by the Moon (also called "Gardening by the Moon") is a traditional way to plant your above- and below-ground crops, especially at the start of the season. Here's how it works:

  • Plant annual flowers and vegetables that bear crops above ground during the light, or waxing, of the Moon. In other words, plant from the day the Moon is new until the day it is full.
  • Plant flowering bulbs, biennial and perennial flowers, and vegetables that bear crops below ground during the dark, or waning, of the Moon. In other words, plant from the day after the Moon is full until the day before it is new again.

Old-time farmers swear that this practice results in a larger, tastier harvest, so we've included planting by the Moon dates in our planting calendar, too. Learn more about Planting and Gardening by the Moon.


Ingredients

Step 1

Combine applejack, lemon juice, orange juice, maple syrup, and bitters in a cocktail shaker. Add ice and shake until the outside of the shaker is frosty, about 20 seconds.

Step 2

Strain cocktail into an ice-filled rocks glass and sprinkle with nutmeg.

How would you rate Applejack Sour?

I brought this drink to a Thanksgiving dinner in 2019 (pre-COVID times) and my wife told me that we would be the only ones drinking it. She was wrong. The bottle was drained in less than an hour. One of my favorites.

Really great drink! Tart and well balanced with a nice punch, it's perfect for the fall season. My fiance and I enjoyed this during our Quarantine Thanksgiving for 2 this year!

Yum. Now I just need a coupe glass to enjoy it even more.

I made this last year after seeing it in the fall issue. It is Fall in a glass. Sweet, tart and rich. This is now a go-to fall cocktail in my house after serving it to family last Thanksgiving.

I love the thought of "test driving" a recipe. Looking forward to whipping this one up!

This is a winner! Absolutely delicious . I agree with another reviewer that it is good to strain the citrus juice. I have also made this with bourbon when we ran out of applejack (!!) and it’s just as good. This is now part of our cocktail repertoire!

Dammmmmmn this is delicious! Strain your citrus for a cleaner sip.

I really enjoyed this. Very nice combination of a little sweet and a little tart.

Hey, can you give advice on mixing a batch/pitcher of these? Because nothing says "make ahead" more than Thanksgiving. Iɽ love to just have these ready as guests arrive.

I "test drove" this recipe today today to preview it for Thanksgiving. It's a GO! Tried one with nutmeg and one with pumpkin pie spice and both were great. For one I used the 2 T of maple syrup, and for the other I used 1T maple syrup and 1 T apple cider, and they were both winners. Served on the rocks for "sippers." I think my guests are going to LOVE them!

Our Top Slow-Cooker Recipes for Fall

Pork's affinity for apples, peaches and plums is well-known, but slightly sweet autumnal butternut squash also happens to go nicely with the protein's subtle flavor. This recipe, from Melissa Hartwig's new The Whole30 Slow Cooker, is incredibly easy, and even more so if you use the pre-cubed squash many supermarkets sell this time of year. Smoked paprika gives the dish a pleasant depth, making it feel special enough for a Sunday dinner—though we'd gladly eat it any day of the week.

Here's a delicious, amazingly good-smelling mulled cider, or wine, recipe you'll want to make for every fall party—and it could not be easier. It's from Liana Krissoff's new Slow Cook Modern, and can go in one of two directions: You can make it nonalcoholic by using a half-gallon of apple cider, or go the adults-only route and use a bottle of red wine. The other ingredients in this sweet and spiced hot drink are brown sugar, orange and lemon slices, fresh ginger, cinnamon sticks, cloves, allspice berries, cardamom pods and nutmeg—which means that yes, the aroma is out of this world. You can serve the cider, or wine, straight from the slow-cooker, too, on your machine's low or keep-warm setting.

Pumpkin isn't just fantastic with cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. The buttery, earthy squash also is a natural for more sophisticated spices, such as cumin, coriander and cardamom. Toss cubes of pumpkin into the slow cooker along with onion, garlic, ginger, the spices, some chicken stock and a can of unsweetened coconut milk and, in two or three hours, you'll have a thick, creamy soup that combines sweet and spicy flavors.

Summer may get all the glory when it comes to colorful produce, but this recipe is a reminder of just how beautiful autumn vegetables can be. It stars bright-orange, sweet-tasting butternut squash and deep-green kale, plus creamy chickpeas and a supporting cast of some of our favorite flavor-boosters, such as garlic and smoky paprika.

The addition of apple cider to Hartwig's Asian noodle dish serves two happy purposes: it brings a lightly spiced, fall flavor to the broth and it provides a fruity counterpoint to the spoonful of five-spice powder used to make the dish (the five spices are usually cinnamon, cloves, fennel seeds, star anise and Szechuan peppercorns). Bite-size strips of pork tenderloin and carrot noodles (or spiralized carrots) make up the bulk of the filling yet healthy soup, and they're kicked up with a smattering of sliced green onions, chopped cilantro and toasted sesame seeds.

As if we needed another reason to love nachos, here's an insanely good twist on the classic. You cook chicken thighs, or breasts, in a mixture of Buffalo sauce, sweet chili sauce, honey, soy sauce and chili flakes until it's shreddable. Then, arrange the cooked meat over a layer of tortilla chips, top it with Monterey Jack and cheddar and bake for five minutes. Serve these sweet and spicy nachos with jalapeños, green onions and cilantro, or with sliced olives, dollops of sour cream and/or diced avocado.

Busy fall weekends don't have to end with takeout on a Sunday night. This tried-and-true pot roast is perfect for days when you're running from sporting event to apple picking, since it's warm and filling yet doesn't require more than a few minutes of your time. And while the basic recipe calls for carrots, we love swapping in parsnips, which are in season from fall right through spring. Their sweet, nutty taste is a nice complement to the rich beef.

Pork and apples are a classic pairing the mild-tasting meat is perfect with the sweet-tart fruit. This smart recipe has you combine a pork loin with sliced apples. As the fruit stews in the slow cooker, it softens into a slumpy, chunky sauce that would be great on its own, but is even better with juicy pork tenderloin.

There are dozens of ways to make festive, fondue-like baked Brie, but here is a version you may not have tried before, which draws on the dried form of a quintessential fall fruit: cranberries. You sprinkle tart, dried cranberries over the cheese, along with balsamic vinegar (which turns into a rich syrup when cooked) and finely chopped, fresh rosemary. The result is a savory and sweet complement to the melted, buttery Brie that's perfect with crackers, sliced apples or toast points.

The flavors in this hearty chicken stew are inspired by a traditional Chinese hot pot and include shiitake mushrooms, minced garlic, five-spice powder and a bit of red-pepper flakes, among other ingredients. But the surprise addition is a quarter-cup of dark maple syrup, which adds a pleasing counterpoint to the spices. And while the syrup is typically made in the spring, its sweet taste and caramel color feel just right on a cool and crisp fall day plus, using maple syrup in a meaty dish, as Katie Webster shows us how to in her new book, Maple, feels fresh and new.

If you've got a slow cooker, you've probably made chili in it, realizing, as we have, that it seems there's no limit to how long the meat and spices can spend simmering away, melding together in perfect harmony. It's a great dish to make for a game-watching crowd, too, since guests can help themselves and top off their chili bowls with their choice of fixings. Instead of beef, though, this recipe has you use boneless, skinless chicken breasts, or thighs, cut into half-inch cubes. The poultry is surprisingly perfect with corn, green chilies, salsa, beans and cilantro it's a milder meat than beef and lets the bright taste of all those other ingredients shine.

Old-fashioned apple cake is such a nice sweet to have around make it on a Sunday and you'll have a not-too-heavy, just-indulgent-enough dessert to eat all week (that is, if it lasts that long). We love this creative recipe from the new cook book, Slow Cooker Desserts, by Roxanne Wyss and Kathy Moore. You actually bake the cake in a springform pan set in the cooker, so you get a perfectly round cake but can actually leave the house while it bakes.

Although you can get pecans year-round, they're harvested in the fall and the buttery-tasting nuts often show up in Thanksgiving desserts. Try them in Wyss and Moore's bread pudding, which combines cubed cinnamon-swirl bread with the crunchy nuts. In just a few hours, the slow cooker turns the egg- and milk-soaked bread into tender pudding that melts in your mouth.

Keep a container of flavorful chutney on hand and you'll never be at a loss for a creative appetizer, lunch or dessert. This one incorporates cranberries, crystallized ginger, dried apricots, cinnamon and orange juice, so it makes a lovely sweet and spicy combination. Spoon it onto a block of cream cheese and either serve the two as a spread for crackers, dollop some on top of a wheel of Brie, add it to a grilled cheese sandwich, spread it on warm scones or let it accompany a slice of pound cake.

Apple butter is basically applesauce that's gone to the dark side. When you cook the ingredients (apples, cider, spices, lemon juice—plus some brown sugar) in a slow cooker for hours, their flavor concentrates. The sugar caramelizes and turns the apples deep brown. The longer you cook it, the better. Wyss and Moore suggest letting it simmer overnight, since it will thicken while you sleep, and you can wake up to warm, fresh apple butter to spread on toast, muffins or scones.
