Expert Tips

Bell pepper stars cut with miniature cookie cutters make a fun and festive decoration to top off this cozy chili.

Invite the gang over for a tree-trimming party. Double the chili recipe, and make it in a 6-quart Dutch oven. Serve the chili with a “make it your way” chili bar. Provide toppings of sour cream, salsa, shredded cheeses, chopped red onion, chopped ripe olives, chopped avocado and, for the bold, red pepper sauce. Have baskets filled with croutons, tortilla chips, muffins and breadsticks for chili dipping. For an extra treat, offer purchased bread bowls or tortilla bowls (available at your supermarket) to serve the chili in.
