Yields1 ServingPrep Time45 minsCook Time1 hrTotal Time1 hr 45 mins

Every Halloween, we get a LOT of trick or treaters at our house. Like 500. Kind of crazy. We always have hot dogs, hot links, cole slaw, and chili for any of our friends who want to take a short break. They can get some food and a beverage while thier kids count and/or trade their loot. Jilly's Chili is the star of the show. People know it's no ordinary chili. She won the Malibu West Chili Cookoff, and Jilly's name is perpetually engraved on the Malibu West Chili Cook Off plaque. Yes - That is big. Really big. She deserves it. Jilly's Chili is vegetarian, it's real, and it's spectacular.
