Chilly Day Chili with a Halloween twist

We have finally gotten some cooler weather here which has been really nice, I love Fall. It would probably be my favorite Season, the only reason it beats out Spring is because of all the mud then, with all of the cooler weather I have been making soup, almost every night :)
So I decided that for dinner I needed to take a break from soup and make..... CHILI! Lol, big change huh?
My kiddos are Chili fans, and to go with our Chili the girls made some creepy Halloween Spider Bread Sticks, I have directions on how to make those on my other blog.

Chilly Day Chili
1 lb ground burger
1 (29 oz) can tomato sauce
1 (15 oz) can kidney beans
1 (15 oz) can pinto beans
1 can of corn
1-1/2t. chili powder
1-1/2t. cumin
1/2t. oregano powder
1T. onion powder
1t. garlic salt/ or minced garlic

Brown the burger in a large pot, stir in the seasonings. Add in the remaining ingredients, simmer on low for 30-45 minutes stirring occasionally. Serve with cornbread or bread sticks.

Yum! Love the spider!

Not sure if you saw my post to you on Chicago Mom's What's For Dinner - Burritos post. Were you looking for pumpkin puree advice?

thoser spider bread sticks look adorable!! I make a very similar chili except I don't put the corn in and use 2 cans of black beans instead of the beans you use and cook with the ground beef a bell pepper. it is yummy and filling (all that protein :)

soups and stews are great for filling up tummies this time of year :)

I am so going to have to try this. That chili looks so yummy in the pastry shell. Unsure about the spider though, not a fan of spiders, nor do i want them near my food. :D

Thank you!!!
