Stir it Up!: It was a dark and chili night
Halloween celebrations, like Valentine's Day parties, come in two flavors: "kid" and "grown-up."

But whichever type you are hosting, one thing is for sure: You have to feed your guests. And there is arguably nothing easier for feeding a crowd at Halloween than a pot of chili.
