Fall is in the air! It’s the perfect time to have a Fall Party with Chili in a Jar for your guests.
When autumn hits, I start craving chili. But it is so messy — too messy to serve at a Fall Party, until now. I made some Chili in a Jar topped with cornbread for the main course at our harvest party, and our guests loved it.
The best part? I used MorningStar Farms Fall Favorites so our meal could be enjoyed by meat lovers and vegetarians alike. Their “veggie cuisine” is so flavorful that it was perfect to use for chili!
I picked up some MorningStar Farms Grillers Crumbles and MorningStar Farms Veggie Corn Dogs at Target while shopping for party supplies.
Chili in a Jar
Here’s what you need to make Chili in a Jar:
- 1 package MorningStar Farms Grillers Crumbles
- 1 cup water
- 2 cloves garlic, chopped
- 2 Tbsp chili powder
- 1 tsp ground cumin
- 1 tsp ground oregano
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/4 tsp cayenne pepper
- 8 oz can tomato sauce
- 15 oz can kidney beans, drained and rinsed
- 15 oz can pinto beans, drained and rinsed
- Cornbread mix (and required ingredients)
- 6 – 16-oz Mason jars
Add the MorningStar Farms Grillers Crumbles to a large pot with 1/3 cup water and garlic. Cook on high for four minutes, stirring. Pour in the remaining water, tomato sauce, spices and beans. Bring to a boil then reduce heat and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally.
Meanwhile, prepare the cornbread mix. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
Pour chili into each jar until it’s 1/3 full. Top with cornbread batter. Place jars in a baking dish.
Bake in oven for 20 minutes until tops of the cornbread are golden brown.
When planning a Fall party, it’s important to focus on the little details. We served the Chili in a Jar with wooden forks accented with glitter washi tape.
I also set out MorningStar Veggie Corn Dogs and some fall and pumpkin themed desserts on cute serving dishes. For drinks, I served apple cider with apple slices. I used milk jars with pretty paper straws and wooden chipboard tags for the drink cups.
I made these cute yarn-wrapped letters to spell FALL for the table, and hung a woolen felt ruffle banner across the table. A burlap table runner and a few small pumpkins tied the whole table together.
