October is National Chili Month, and Hormel is the nation’s leader in canned chili. Whether you enjoy chili as a dip, a topping, or in a bowl, there is always a new and fun way to enjoy it!

The team at Hormel challenged me to come up with ways to enjoy Hormel chili all day long.


Chili Breakfast Burritos

Why not add a scoop of your favorite Hormel chili to your morning breakfast burrito? Eggs, chili, and cheese all wrapped up in a tortilla sounds great to me! If you need some inspiration, check out this breakfast burrito recipe from Hormel.


Chili Cheese Frito Wraps

This is a favorite of mine, and so easy! Spread some Hormel chili in a large flour tortilla. Top with grated cheddar cheese, Fritos, and diced onion. Roll up and enjoy.

Chili on Chips

When I was in elementary school, my FAVORITE hot lunch was chili on chips. We often have this at home when we are short on time. Top tortilla chips with Hormel chili, cheese, and the toppings of your choice. Simple, tasty, and heartier than regular nachos.


Chili Spaghetti

In Ohio, (where my husband is from), there is a restaurant chain that is famous for chili-topped spaghetti. We have been re-creating this at home for years using Hormel Chili No Beans. Simply cook up spaghetti noodles, and top with the chili, grated cheese, and the toppings of your choice. (I like tomatoes!)

Chili Mac

Chili Mac is another highly nostalgic meal for me. I admit, I still love this simple yet tasty meal. You can create your own version using your favorite mac and cheese, and a can of Hormel chili. Add depth to the dish by adding a pound of ground turkey or beef, and a can of corn or tomatoes.

Chili Pizza

We love creating all kinds of pizza at our house. I loved this creative idea from Hormel for a chili-topped pizza!

I want to hear from YOU! Leave a comment letting me know your family’s favorite way to enjoy chili. I think I know what I’m having for lunch!
