There’s something about the change in seasons that sets my soul on fire with happiness, particularly when it comes to the summer to fall transition.

It is finally the time to dive into comfort food face first, and that means one thing to me.

All. The. CHILI.

I have to admit, there was a time I didn’t enjoy chili. This I have to attribute back to my college days when I was broke AF and a microwave potato plus a can of chili and cheddar cheese was a “good homemade meal.”

Yea, I know. Not exactly my finest moment. This was before I knew what cooking for myself and good food really was. Don’t judge me too harshly ok?

Once I learned how to make true, made-from-scratch chili, my mind was blown. It was like I discovered a piece of my soul that had been missing all my life.

I know I sound like how I usually do when speaking of guacamole, but chili truly is my comfort food on a chilly night.

A bowl of piping hot chili, mixed in with a variety of toppings and filled with a bunch of different textures and flavors is as good as life gets in my book.

I used to only make one kind of chili, but for the past few years, I’ve been experimenting with different flavor profiles.

The beans and green chiles provide the texture, as well as a touch of heat.

Then you get the tang of cream cheese and extra boost from heavy cream so that it becomes a creamy bowl full of goodness.

Top with added cheese and jalapenos for more sharpness and spice if you want! With the sliced avocado on top, it becomes an extra hearty dish that you are going to want to dive into the moment you get home from work.
