Spooktacular Halloween Meal

White Chicken Chili and Pumpkin Passion Dessert
When I think about Halloween and food. I really think about comfort food. It’s getting cold outside and fall has begun. Now that I have children to take out trick-or-treating, I tend to lean more toward recipes that are simple, somewhat healthy and are still considered comfort food. A little something to warm me up from the inside out. A friend of mine shared this White Chicken Chili recipe with me a few years ago and I fell in love! With the chili I mean. It really sparks my taste buds. Honestly, I will make a batch of this and will eat it for lunch and dinner every day until it’s gone. It’s also really simple to make. And the plus side? This chili can stand on it’s own…but if you want to add a little something to it you can put it in a bread bowl, serve it with corn bread, or just with some refrigerated rolls (as I did). Although I will warn you it is chili
and it does have some kick to it. Just the right amount of kick. 🙂
Want a fun way to dress up your table for a fun Halloween meal? Pick your spookiest decor and arrange it in the middle of your table. Pick some spice candles and use some peat moss (found on the floral isle of Walmart). Arrange everything on a serving tray. This is bound to bring a spooky feel to your meal time. (See above picture)

  1. I found this recipe on your blog for the white chicken chili years ago . . . and it is, hands down, the best chili ever. I get so many requests to make it and it has taken the prize at a few chili cook-offs. I only wish I could take the credit for it! Thanks for making a family favorite and a tradition for us just by posting this recipe. WE LOVE IT!!!!
