Fall is in the air! Soon the temperatures will drop, the leaves will start changing, pumpkins will be seen all over, and apple picking will be in season. However, one of my favorite things about fall is enjoying a nice, warm bowl of chili with cornbread to wrap up the day. Thankfully, with BUSH’S® Beans, we are able to satisfy that craving!


BUSH’S® Beans are great to keep on hand for last-minute meal needs, so we usually stock up with several cans for the cooler seasons at Walmart. They make chili better,  by providing a slow-simmered taste. With this Fall Chili recipe, you will get a spicy kick to help warm you up, as well as to help soothe your soul.
