YOU GUYS have no idea how excited I am that’s it’s Halloween. It’s hands down and up my favorite holiday of the year! Candy, ghouls, goblins, trick-or-treat smell my feet, haunted houses, and getting to dress up as a sexy mouse just because. What’s not to like?
What’s that? Am I getting dressed up? I should. Any last minute ideas? I thought about dressing up as an emoji. Have you seen this BuzzFeed article? Hysterical.
Some costumes from 80′s past….if you are looking at my bowl mullet..thanks MA! But more importantly, my little pony outfit completely rocks. Even though I sported this outfit for a couple of years, I do miss my fly girls costume. Remember the show In Living Color? I dressed up as one of the dancers….BEST.costume.ever. All of my third grade friends were super jelly.
Besides the infinite supply of candy piled into a pillow case and random costumes roaming the streets, one of my favorite Halloween traditions was my mom making chili. That and building our stuffed dummy, Ferdinand, isn’t he scary? Actually, he looks like a hillbilly that’s been in the giggle juice.
Anyways, my mom would make a big ol’ pot of hearty chili for my brothers and I before we would head out to trick-or-treat. Ground beef, peppers, beans, and a smorgasbord of toppings, it was the perfect fuel to keep us going. Well, I thought I would keep the chili tradition alive by making chili, but with a corny twist.
I am a huge lover of cornbread and I thought it would be fun to stuff the chili into these cornbread muffins. So cute, right? My little pony inner kid just got jazz-hands excited. So, whether you are hitting the streets to trick-or-treat, hanging out with friends, or staying in to watch scary movies, these little chili stuffed cornbread muffins are easy to make and full of ghoulish flavor.
Happy Halloween, friends!
