From chuck wagon to roadside diner to epicurean cook-off, chili has been an all-American favorite for well over a century. Here at EatingWell, we haven't been making chili for quite that long--but we do have some recipes that date back to the 1990s. We have chili recipes made with beef, lamb, chicken, and even some excellent vegetarian chili recipes too. Many of these recipes involve long, slow cooking on the back of the stove--just what you want on a chilly (get it?) fall weekend. (Got more time? Make chili in your crock pot.) There are times, though--and tonight is one of them--when I want to go home and make chili for dinner. In 30 minutes. (In the mood for soup? Try these 30-minute soup recipes.)
