Halloween is probably one of THE MOST favorite holidays of mine. I love the decorations (especially vintage Halloween), the pumpkin patch (best photo opp), the candy (butterfingers), the costumes (I was a Spice Girl once) and of course the COOKING. Every year its a tradition I make my Chili Con Carne that is a lot like mole because towards the end of the simmering I slip in a bar of 70% dark chocolate (my nod to Mole). It’s award winning too if you count the 3rd place ribbon at my kids school Chili Cook Off.
If you trick or treat at my house you’ll see me perched in my beach chair with a big bowl of it in my lap. Pair it with a good lager beer and Trader Joe’s cornbread mix and you are set.
