Episode 3: Hybrid Chili for a Split Table and Yummy Yogurt Bread. It's Halloween! My family has a tradition of enjoying chili on Halloween so I make it every year. We just love chili! Chili is a great meal for a split table family or group of people because you can just use two crockpots and load them at the same time so you have one with meat and one meatless. This recipe is super tasty and one my family really enjoys, I hope you do as well!
