Courtney Schulist: Super Easy 5 Ingredient Chili

Grab your spoons, it’s Chili season!! Perhaps I should start off by saying any time is Chili time for me. I don’t discriminate based on weather, but I especially love it during the Fall/Winter seasons. Unfortunately, I don’t always have the time to make the beans homemade on top of making the chili, so this Chili recipe is for those times.

This Chili can be made using only 5 ingredients and is super quick to make. It’s also delicious, but most chili is. READ MORE 



Anita Stafford: Savage Chili

When the weather turns cool a bowl of chili is one of my favorite meals. Savage Chili is a recipe I have been making at my house for several years because it is easy to put together and super delicious. This recipe has been adapted from the cookbook Winning Recipes for Tailgatinga cookbook that was compiled by the Winston Cup racing wives auxiliary. I received the cookbook as a gift from a golf tournament my husband was playing in, and this has been a super cookbook. Now and then my husband even gets the cookbook out and makes the chili himself. READ MORE

It’s finally getting cold in Arkansas! I never thought this moment would happen since we were in the 90’s last week, but that’s the South for you – really unpredictable weather. It’s been a cold and rainy weekend so I knew exactly what I wanted to cook Sunday night for dinner… Spicy White Chicken Chili! It’s not too spicy, but it does have a little kick. READ MORE

Katharine Trauger: Second Place Chili


My son wanted to enter a guys-only, chili-making contest, and asked me to teach him how to make a pot of chili.So I did. This is my favorite recipe, and I promise I only told him what to do—I did not touch it, the entire process.

Smoky, hot, and red throughout I love it, even for breakfast with an egg on top. Oh MY! READ MORE

Anita Stafford: Dove’s White Chicken Chili

This is a delicious chicken chili recipe that I borrowed from one of my sister’s cookbooks. Helen is as avid a cookbook collector as I am, so when I visit her in Texas, I always spend some time browsing her cookbooks for interesting recipes. This chili recipe came from The Dove’s Nest cookbook published by the Dove’s Nest Restaurant in Waxahachie, Texas. READ MORE

Jamie Smith: 1 for 1 Meat and Bean Chili Slow Cooker Chili

This chili is almost not a recipe, considering it’s so easy! It’s one of my more popular winter potluck recipes that coworkers at one of my jobs usually asked me to make. My husband loves it too!

I call it 1-for-1 chili because essentially, the ingredients are one of everything for one pound of meat. READ MORE


Beer Braised Beef Short Ribs {Foodie Friday}

By Lisa Mullis of Frenetic Lisa and Arkansas Outside

My family loves braised short ribs and I have a collection of short rib recipes like this one from Better Homes and Gardens. Braising uses a combination of high dry heat searing with a long moist cook. Many people use slow cookers for braising and recipes like this one have been adapted for the ease of using a slow cooker but if I’m going to be home I prefer to use my 3 qt. Lodge Enamel Dutch Oven.

I’ve used enough braised rib recipes that I have a pretty good idea of ingredient combinations that I like. I discovered a bottle of Samuel Adams Harvest Pumpkin Ale in my refrigerator. I remembered that it was a little sweet and thought it would be a perfect beer for braising my ribs so I decided to make up a recipe with ingredients I had on hand. Short ribs are a fatty cut so I used butternut squash and carrots to give the dish a slightly healthier twist while keeping a hearty texture, plus I thought the combination of the pumpkin ale and the butternut would be nice. I scaled the recipe to fit my three member family and my Dutch oven dimensions.

My name is Lisa, I love to cook for and eat with my family. I run, lift heavy stuff and cycle to make room for more food. When I’m not looking at tiny things under a microscope at work, I write about my cooking, running, lifting and cycling and my friends who do all those things too at Frenetic Fitness and Arkansas Outside.
