58 Chili-Inspired Dishes

Warm Up on National Chili Day with These Delicious Meal and Snack Ideas

— February 25, 2016 — Lifestyle
In honor of National Chili Day, celebrate with one of these creative dishes that use chili in classic and non-traditional ways. For example, a rise in vegan and vegetarian lifestyles has lead to the popularity of meat-free chili options.

Other dishes simply make use of chili butter, powder, chili cheese and chili sauce to enhance flavor. For example, the latest meal option from Burger King is a flame-grilled hot dog topped with chili cheese. Additionally, a new dish titled 'Voodoo Fries' from Red Robbin is spicy and topped with "bacon, queso, fried jalapenos and a dash of taste bud-tingling ghost chili sauce."

With so many ways to celebrate National Chili Day -- LiveStrong.com recently posted a 'Mexican Black Bean and Avocado Oatmeal' recipe, which gives a classic dish an exciting twist -- foodies can satisfy both savory and sweet cravings with these tasty meal ideas.
