Fall smells are in the air and that includes Big Dipper's world-famous (to those of us who have had it) chili.  Both Chad and I have seen posts on social media telling of the delicious arrival.

When I worked for Burns Middle School each Fall we would have a potluck and a Chili cookoff.  Someone always tried to sneak in Big Dipper Chili as their own and every single time they go called out LOL.  I mean who wouldn't know Big Dipper Chili.

Their chili is only served through the beginning of May and starts back up after summer.  We are so happy they have brought it back.  It is a sure-fire way to know here in these parts that the seasons have changed.

We love chili at our house and it is tradition to make a huge pot and celebrate when we decorate the house inside and out for fall.  When I met Joe he didn't know how to make chili (or Totino's pizza) now he is a professional chef and I've taught him how to make my momma's chili.  We make our chili with a mixture of ground beef and sausage.  The sausage gives it something extra.  Next time you make chili try it I think you might find you love it.

Do you have a favorite chili recipe?  Who serves your favorite chili in town?  Let us know at the WBKR Facebook page.
