The Best Fall Chili Recipe

Shop Similar Tablescape Items:
The first day of fall was yesterday! Fall is definitely my favorite season and so I was pleasantly surprised that cooler weather arrived last week. Here in Pittsburgh, September can be a toss-up. Sometimes it is sweltering, sometimes it's freezing, so this year we definitely have been getting lucky with the weather. 

This past weekend we went to a local pumpkin patch and then finished off the weekend with Sunday chili which we made with ingredients we ordered using our new Walmart+ membership! We made chili often last year and it is not only a great Sunday meal, but since it is just the two of us, it makes a lot for the rest of the week! 

This is seriously the BEST chili recipe I have found. It's meat-heavy and so incredibly flavorful. We follow the recipe without making any edits of our own. This recipe makes a TON of servings too, so you could cut it in half if you wanted but we never do because we love love love the leftovers and there are so many different things you can do with leftover chili. We like to bake a sweet potato and put chili on top. SO good! 

We keep shredded cheese and sour cream on hand as my fiancĂ© likes to add that to his bowl, but I just eat mine plain. It's so flavorful that you don't need to add anything! 

We ordered all of the ingredients we needed from Walmart and had them delivered. Walmart+ just launched on September 15th and I signed up that day! It's $98/year and you can sign up for a free 15-day trial before committing. You can select a monthly plan for $12.95/month. With the one year subscription, rather than the monthly subscription, you save $57.40/year in membership fees. You get free unlimited delivery (including groceries, $35 minimum, restrictions apply) and everyday low prices on the items. Most items arrive as fast as the same-day or next-day and this benefit includes more than 160,000 items from tech to household essentials and groceries.

If you have ordered groceries from Walmart in the past, then you know they usually charge a delivery fee. So even if you order twice per once per month, it's worth the yearly membership fee and you'll actually end up saving money (based on the $7.95 delivery fee).  Membership benefits of Walmart+ are dependent on location, so check out their site to see what benefits are in your area!

I truly think this will be a game-changer when the holiday season arrives. Shipping from some stores can be majorly delayed during the holiday season so having access to next-day delivery is going to make it so easy for ordering certain gifts and even little things like wrapping materials, stuff to decorate the tree (I can't tell you how many times we ran out of ornament hooks last year!!), and more. 

Just to give you an example of things you can get free unlimited delivery ($35 minimum, restrictions apply) on:
- Advil/Ibuprofen/other medicines 
- Dishwasher or washing machine pods
- Toilet paper
- Beauty/skincare
- Dog food/pet products
- Coffee pods/grounds/etc. 
- Light bulbs 

These are all of the items I can think of off the top of my head that are things that you can easily run out of and then need to replace pretty quickly! Thank you to Walmart for sponsoring this post. As always, all opinions are my own.
