Callier's Catering St. Louis fall image for national chili month

Are you loving the cool nights and beautiful blue-sky days that autumn brings to the St. Louis area? We sure are! It makes us want to cook up a big batch of chili and sit around the fire with loved ones. In fact – there’s a reason October is National Chili Month!

According to the International Chili Society, chili was popularized in the 1800s during the Gold Rush. Cowboys combined dried beef, fat, pepper, salt, and chili peppers into rectangles or “chili bricks” that were dumped into boiling water over a fire.

To this day, we Americans still love our meaty chili and various versions that bring us all together with a warm sweater and a cold bevie. The Callier family loves chili so much, we’ve worked to perfect our slow-cooked recipes and won awards for bringing the heat with delicious flair.
