Chili bread Boat

Getting bored with chili? Try A Chili Bread Boat

There are certain foods I have a tendency to only make during the fall and winter months; one of those recipes is chili. I’ll make beef chili, chicken chili, sweet chili, spicy chili, chili over spaghetti, and just about everything in between. I start to get bored with chili by the time spring rolls around unless we have an especially cold day. Do you get bored with chili? Someone shared a post for a Taco Boat, but I’m a traditionalist when it comes to making tacos. It did spark an idea, I thought that chili would be delicious prepared like that. Boy was I right, it might be my favorite way to eat chili now. I made a large Chili Bread Boat and it was quickly devoured by my little family.

I’m going to share my chili recipe, but you’re more than welcome to use your own. I make chili a variety of ways as I mentioned above. I do make this a little drier than typical chili, because I don’t want to completely drench my bread boat. I make it just moist enough to soak into the bread without causing it to fall apart.

I’ll be honest, I went to the grocery for Italian bread to make this Chili Bread Boat, but our rural store only had French bread that day; I decided I would make it work.

      Gabe doesn’t normally eat chili, but he ate this because of the bread. Let me know if you try it!
