Taryn's Wreckreation Guide: Celebrate National Chili Day!

February 23, 2017


Total coincidence, but I packed chili made by a friend for dinner tonight, and the 4th Thursday of February just happens to be #NationalChiliDay - no joke!! It's like I have ESP or something. Naturally, I feel a celebration is warranted in my Wreckreation Guide. Whether you make it yourself or go out and grab a bowl tonight, here's some inspiration for National Chili Day! 


First off, if Sonic the Hedgehog is celebrating, we should be celebrating.

It's the second-most wonderful day of the year! #nationalchiliday

An awesome topic of conversation on National Chili Day involves your threshold for SPICE! How hot do YOU like your chili?


National Chili Day is also a day to highlight our love for cheese. Where would chili be without it??

Almost lunchtime on #NationalChiliDay. You'll know where to find us.

Of course we all have our favorite recipes, but on such a special holiday, why not try a new recipe? This one sparked my interest...


Tonight, I'll be dining on my girlfriend CJ's chili. She whipped up a DELICIOUS batch, and I would describe it almost savory-sweet on the front end, then BAM - the spice hits you on the back end! Thank you CJ!!

Happy #NationalChiliDay from me and my bomb ass dinner!

If you have a kick-ass recipe you want to share with me, please send me an email so I can bust it out! This time of year, every day is a good day for chili, but today we celebrate its greatness. 


Happy Adventuring,
