Holiday Recipes with Winn Dixie

The holidays are almost here! I’m excited and yet a little anxious. We are hosting Christmas Eve dinner this year at our house. We had a big Thanksgiving Feast at my cousins house last month. I’ve never hosted a large dinner before because we’ve never lived this close to so many relatives before! It’s great to be able to share the holidays with family!

When I chose Christmas Dinner I started thinking of something different than the usual turkey or ham dinner. I wanted something fun and unique. So I choose Chili!

Here is our menu:

My husband’s famous sweet chili


Onion rings

Hot dogs

Corn chips and salsa



Beer and Christmas Margaritas

and of course all the toppings like onions, sour cream and cheese!


Here is my Hubby’s recipe!
