Valentine’s Day Red Beet Chili: Wow Your Guests!

When we hosted a small Super Bowl Party this last Sunday, I couldn’t wait to serve my Chicken Chili (I quadrupled the recipe in my book – pg. 171), as well as a brand-spanking-new Red Beet Chili.

Chili is just so wintery, so Super-Bowl-ish {is that a word? :)} and tasty!

This chili was the talk of the party, I must say. Not only bright in color, healthy and hearty, the fact that it’s vegetarian – gave us all a little something to talk about. But I particularly thought the flavor was rich and robust. I love the way the spices are toasted before mixing them in …

I think this is perfect for a Valentine’s Dinner, too, if garnished tastefully with sour cream and cilantro!

I’m re-sharing the Red Beet Chili recipe in another post on RE, so go ahead and click on over to print it out.
It’s unique and different and chili lovers will love YOU! :)

All I can say is … A-MAZ-ING!

Do you make vegetarian or meat chili? And what are your plans for Valentine’s Day dinner?


  1. This looks delicious! I love beetroot but I never really know what to do with it other than boil it gently and eat it warm. This is perfect for valentines day too, the colour is so vibrant.

    Hope you have a lovely valentines weekend,

  2. Not only does this look beautiful, but I bet it’s full of good nutrients, too!

  3. I would say usually a meat chili – but I love beets and so this is *GOOD* to know about. I would love to taste it -first- before making a batch of it.

    I’m sure it’s wonderful. thanks for sharing.

  4. I actually like beets as well as chili so this is a recipe I’ll have to try. I love soups and stews, especially in winter (it was -9 here yesterday morning!). I usually make chili with meat.

  5. I love this recipe! I can’t wait to try it!

  6. Wow, sounds good. I love beets and chili, so might like this combo. I do make meatless chili often. In fact I made it yesterday in my crockpot because I was going to be gone around dinner time (I had to take Kat to soccer practice). I use a variety of beans (last night it was kidney, black, and chili beans..I’ve used pinto and cannelini as well), can of petite diced tomatoes, a can of tomatoe sauce and a pack of chili seasoning. Yesterday I also shredded some carrot in it and diced some zucchini, and threw in some millet. YUMMY!!!!

  16. Looks great! I will definitely try this. I make meatless chili exclusively, and the one of the best things I’ve found to put in it is sweet potatoes – they go amazingly well with spicy tomato-based sauce and all the other chili ingredients.

  17. Perfect! Added the link to this recipe in todays post :)
