Jalapeno Popper Chili

Happy Valentine’s Day! I hope your day goes well! We don’t exchange big gifts for Valentine’s Day…only small things like chocolates, cards or homemade treats. One thing we do like to do is enjoy a meal together. With our kids being older now, sitting down to the table to have supper as a family doesn’t happen as often as it should because of busy schedules. But when we do sit down, this Jalapeno Popper Chili warms out hearts up like nothing else! And this spin on chili is totally inspired by one of favourite appetizers….Jalapeno Poppers.

This recipe combines all of the flavours of our favourite appetizer  and is very easy to put together. And adding some jalapeno poppers as a garnish is the perfect touch!
