Ahhhhh!   Today has been so much fun!  Between my children dressing up to go to school celebrations, to our tradition of eating “Chunky Texas Chili” to the trick-or-treating……hearing all the giggles as they donned their costumes…..candy GALORE….I’m loving this day!

I love to make the same thing every Halloween, creating a tradition.   I made this quick and EASY Texas chili this afternoon, then, heated it in the oven before serving.  We scooped it into flour tortillas and, it was DELISH!
