Gluten & Dairy Free Chili
A Miniature Halloween/Football Menu Idea
(I also mention a corn alternative)
My mom always made chili for Halloween to go along with our chili dogs. I made white bean chili this weekend and it was delicious. I have SEVERE heartburn issues, so this is a great alternative to traditional tomato based chili for Halloween night. You can even serve both types if you'd like. Not only is chili easy, but it is a cost effective party dish that is very filling. Many gluten & dairy free ingredients are very expensive, so when I entertain, I try to focus on foods that do not require specialty ingredients. Research suggests that its good to have protein whenever consuming sugar. After-all, Halloween can be one of the sugariest nights of the year for many!
In addition, I would have a few appetizers and a fun salad on the side.
So there you have it! A mini - Halloween/Football menu idea that can work for both gluten and non-dairy free-ers.
If you are sensitive to corn, you can also serve this with garlicky roasted potatoes or sweet potato fries.
Have a fabulous gluten & dairy free chili month! Let me know if you would like
me to post some chili recipes. I will be more than happy to post the cornbread recipe as well.
