February 28th is National Chili Day! I absolutely love chili, especially in the winter time. It has been so cold this month and we have been eating a lot of chili in our home. To celebrate the holiday though I wanted to put together an ultimate list of chili recipes. We have 100 recipes that cover every kind of chili you can think of. To make it easy to find your favorite we have split them up into categories including slow cooker, Instant Pot, healthy, spicy, meat lovers, and more. Hope you enjoy them!

There are so many great recipes out there for chili and many with all types of ingredients. Sometimes though you just want a classic bowl of chili. I have found a few favorites that I love to use when we want easy and classic chili.
Classics are great but sometimes you want to try something different. One thing I love about chili is that you can add all kind of ingredients and make it different every time you have it. A few of my favorite unique recipes are below.
Slow Cooker Recipes:
One of the best things about chili is that you can put all the ingredients in a slow cooker in the morning, set it and forget it. When you get home after a busy day you have some amazing chili to feed the family. It’s the perfect meal for a busy family on the go. Here are a few of my favorite slow cooker recipes.
My new obsession is Instant Pot recipes. Sometimes I don’t have time to prep everything before I leave in the morning but I still need something quick. The Instant Pot is perfect for a quick and easy chili recipe. Here are a few of my favorites.
Are you a meat lover? There are so many different kinds of meats you can add to chili and each one has a great flavor that really changes the flavor. If you love meat then you are going to love these recipes.
If meat is not your thing then these vegetarian recipes might be what you are looking for. Even though we are meat eaters in our home sometimes it’s great to sneak in some veggies with some yummy chili. Here are a few of my favorite veggie loving recipes.
I don’t have a lot of favorite vegan recipes but here are a few vegan chili recipes that are pretty awesome and taste great. If you are vegan these are great to use so the entire family can enjoy chili night.
One of my favorite ingredient for chili is chicken. It’s a little different than the traditional beef chilis and always tastes great. Here are a few of my favorite chilis that celebrate my favorite bird the chicken.
