Chili Recipes and Wine Pairings Worth Falling For
Sure, spring and summer are great, don’t get us wrong. There’s just something about fall that makes us want to cook up hearty, piping-hot bowls of deliciousness. Welcome to chili season!
Secret ingredients and flavors will differ, but that’s the beauty of it! For every flavor preference, there’s a chili – and a wine – to pair with it.
Below are some of the chili recipes we can’t wait to simmer on our stoves this season. We’ve also paired a few fantastic wines with these recipes to make chili night an event worth savoring!
Take a trip on the lighter side with a recipe like this White Chicken Poblano Chili from Homesick Texan, which will satisfy a crowd, without weighing anyone down. Pair it with a smooth, refreshing glass of Middle Sister Sweet & Sassy Moscato. The touch of natural sweetness in the wine makes it delightful to sip with spicy foods.
‘Tis the season for parties! Bring along a batch of this casserole-style Texas Chili Frito Pie with a bottle of Cowgirl Sisterhood Cabernet Sauvignon and they’ll be saying “Oh, my darling!” all night.
Chili and cornbread… could there be a better pairing? Only when you add a glass of THE Dark from Cosentino Winery. Try this recipe for Slow-Cooker Pulled-Pork Chili with Cornbread Dumplings with a rich, velvety wine like THE Dark, full of jammy blue and black fruit flavors. It’s sure to be a new fall favorite!
