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.

    BB – what is garam masala? What spices are in it (maybe I can recreate with what I already have).

    Mom-in-law: I buy garam masala at a small Indian market near our place. I did a quick Google and came up with this recipe.

    Would be helpful if the can size of the tomatoes were provided.
