    During the cold, occasionally dreary, months of winter there is nothing better than a steaming bowl of chili: the ultimate comfort food. Chili is also one of the most versatile dishes in the book. The prep time can be long or short, and you can be as traditional or creative with the recipe as you please.

    A simmering pot of chili will warm up any occasion; it's the quintessential recipe for both family meals and stress-free entertaining. Set out the chili alongside bowls full of colorful toppings and crisp tortilla strips, and let your guests help themselves.

    Chili is a spicy stew usually containing chili peppers, meat, and tomatoes. Traditional versions are made using chili peppers, garlic, onions, and cumin, along with chopped or ground beef. Variations, both geographic and personal, may involve different types of meat as well as a variety of other ingredients, especially beans.

    And don't forget vegetarian chili-so healthy!

    The variant recipes provoke disputes among aficionados, some of whom insist that the word "chili" only applies to the basic dish. Chili is a frequent dish for cook-offs. It is also used as an ingredient in a number of other dishes.

    And then there's chili dogs and chili topped potatoes and chili over pasta!

    Here are a few chili recipes from

    We love Chili and for us no beans and it has to be hot. Really, really hot.
    Like Terlingua Red Chili. If you don't make Dried Chili Salsa buy 2 jars of the hottest salsa you can stand.
    We also like Chili Colorado.

    My vegetarian daughter loves Vegetarian Black Bean Chili.
    When I am in the mood for beans in my Chili, White Bean Chicken Chili fits the bill nicely!

    This recipe has saved my b*** any number of times when I did not have much of anything planned, 30-Minute Chili . I always keep a couple of cans of beans around, in case I need to make right away, but otherwise I try to cook from dried, just to reduce sodiuim. I always have some frozen hamburger patties, and will thaw two of those to make a half-batch of this, which is enough for us for a meal. (Mr Grumpy is bad with leftovers). I also try to put in extra beans, but he grumbles if he figures it out.

    I won my company's chili cook-off with this recipe - gold medallion proudly displayed in my office - over people who spend days cooking theirs. Not bad for a half-hour's effort!

    We've tried white chilis, they work better if I pretend it's a soup. I like vegetarian versions, but Mr Grumpy is set in his ways, so again, I have to treat them as a soup, add some more broth.

    I have to tell you about this recipe-Okra told us about it in Community Cafe and let me tell you it works. You will have a bag of dried beans cooked to perfection in under 2 hours. So, if your ever in a pinch and "need" beans for your chili, give Oven Cooked Dry Beans a shot-it really does work!

    Dibs, thanks, that looks very useful. I am sure they cook faster because the heat surrounds the entire container. Very useful. I also like throwing dry beans into the slow cooker and just letting them go - carefree.

    Chili lovers Spicy Three Meat Chili is a thick very meaty chili. Beans are optional.

    You can't have a chili thread with out including a recipe for Chile Verde con Cerdo. It is delicious over burritos and topped with lots of cheese, lettuce, tomatoes and a big dollop of sour cream.
