It’s November. So in theory, it’s time for fall food. Stews, soups, chili. Fall really is my favorite food season of the year (don’t even get me started on how much I love Thanksgiving!)

This year has been a weird year though. Hubby and I spent last weekend soaking up as much sunshine as we could. The highs both days were in the upper 70s and we even hit the low 80s. And even yesterday, we went downtown to vote early and it was 81 out. On November 2. Unreal.

But today we’re back to more seasonal temperatures, which makes me want all those delicious, stick-to-your-ribs kind of foods. Enter this crockpot chicken chili. It really is easy. And tasty. What more could you want?

I topped ours with some fresh avocado and cilantro – two of my favorite ingredients. Speaking of cilantro, I’m sure you’re all aware that there are people who HATE it. We all know someone like that. In fact, my sister hates cilantro.

For some reason, I was recently parusing the website ihatecilantro.com and came across their haiku page. Now, I hated writing haikus in high school english class, but I found these haikus about hatred towards cilantro pretty freaking hilarious. Check them out if you need a chuckle.

    I think this homemade version has to beat the pants off the one with canned mushroom soup. I mean, with portobellos and shitakes? Yes please!

    I’ve only tried the “classic” green bean casserole for the first time like a month ago and I’m definitely recreating it this weekend – cream of mushroom and all! Yours, however, looks gourmet and unprocessed!

    i’ve never had Green Bean casserole and want to try it so badly! I may just make the processed version to see how it tastes. Yours looks way more fabulous than I could probably ever get mine to be!

    home made green bean casserole! I didn’t know it was possible! 🙂 Personally I’m in the hate category… but I’d be willing to try this version 🙂

    Oooh, I am so excited about this! A friend requested green bean casserole for a small holiday party that I’m hosting, but I really, really didn’t want to make the regular version of it. This is perfect!

    This sounds like a very useful veggie side dish come the post-Xmas dinners. I did notice recently that oriental shops also sell roasted shredded crispy onions, if you find yourself very short of time one day (they are not expensive).
