Halloween Eve Sunday Supper {Spooky Southwest Chili}

It still feels like summer around here but that didn’t stop us from having chili for our Sunday Supper.  We had an extra guest for supper too…


NO, not HIM!  One of the littles’ friends.  Hahaha!

I picked up a bag of ghost and bat chips at Trader Joe’s (because how could I leave that behind) and made it all the way to Halloween eve without using them.  This seemed like a cute enough way to make use of them!


The littles had been playing HARD in the yard for a couple of hours at this point.  Hence the shirtless baby at dinner.  For dessert I made brownies in our tombstone pan and let the littles decorate their own.



The chili recipe comes together quickly.  I couldn’t find the tomatoes and green chilis this week so I used tomatoes and sweet onions.  Turned out fine.

Southwestern Chili
1 pound ground beef
1 cup coarsely chopped onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
2 (16-oz.) cans light red kidney beans, rinsed and drained
1 (15-oz.) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 (14.5-oz) can petite diced tomatoes and jalapeños, undrained
1 (14.5-oz.) can diced tomatoes and mild green chiles, undrained
1 (14-oz.) can beef broth
2 cups frozen yellow and white whole kernel corn
1 (1-oz.) envelope taco seasoning mix
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro

Toppings: sour cream, cheese, tortilla chips, avocado and chopped fresh cilantro

Brown ground beef, onion, and garlic in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, stirring often, 10 to 12 minutes or until meat crumbles and is no longer pink and onion is softened; drain.

Stir in kidney beans, next 8 ingredients, and 4 cups water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Cover, reduce heat to low, and simmer 30 minutes or until thoroughly heated. Stir in cilantro just before serving. Serve with desired toppings.

It’s hard to believe Halloween is just a day away!!!

  1. Hi Amanda — another great post. I had my Sunday School class (6 to 9 year-olds) put together the “Bugs and Kisses” bags of yours yesterday. They then passed them out to the kiddos after the children’s service at church. What fun! Grown-ups were loving the bags too. People were putting your blog name in their phones after church. I’ve been telling people about your precious blog; I think they finally realized I was right. LOL.

    Love your black & white plates. Do you remember where you purchased them?
    They must be a great base for many of your tablescapes.

  2. Chili is a Halloween tradition – and those chips are the perfect touch!

    What’s with this weather… usually I’d say it won’t be long before we’re complaining about being cold, but looking at the forecast (and no rain in sight either!) doesn’t leave me feeling too confident that’s the case!

    Hope your Halloween was the very best – on to Thanksgiving and Christmas!
