As I mentioned in our “Foods That Make Us Angry” slideshow, it seems to be human nature to brag excessively whenever you make a pot of chili. As annoyed as it makes me to listen to someone talk for 15 minutes about the spicy 7-bean mixture they’ve got simmering on the stove, I try to be patient, because lord knows I’ve chili-bragged on numerous occasions, and you know what? Sometimes a chili brag is totally warranted. For example, in the case of these 10 chili recipes, all of which look delicious enough to brag about for daaaayyyyys.

Remember when they used to bring out the gummy worm and crumbled Oreo “dirt” cake at elementary school Halloween parties and it was, like, the greatest thing ever? I might have been particularly enthusiastic because I was eating a lot of actual dirt in my day-to-day life (my brothers and I used to play “restaurant” out in the garden and it was considered quite rude not to take a bite of a freshly-made mud pie), and Oreo dirt had a much more pleasant flavor. Anyway, the point is that just because we’re adults doesn’t mean we can’t still cook up some spooky Halloween-themed food.
