The first one on the list is generally a fan favorite in winter, young and old alike love this dish. It has to be on your table at least once in winter and you will wish you did it more often. A classic chili con carne will consist of beef, onions, beans, and the sauce. This is the base for any chili, however, you can add or take away whatever you like to put your own spin on it. A lot of people throw in some peppers to bulk it out a bit. When you dish this, make sure you serve it with rice and salad. 


Another idea that you can consider is adding some enchiladas to your life. If you’re a fan of some spice, some incredible flavors, sauce and cheese, then this is definitely something that you should consider. It gives you that warm feeling when you’re eating it, while also being packed full of nutrients and vitamins from all of the vegetables that are included in the recipe. You can make this as spicy or as mild as you want depending on your personal preferences, as well as with or without any meat. Enchiladas are pretty customizable based on your dietary requirements and preferences, so it works for everyone.


If you really can’t be bothered to stand over the stove for hours on end then what better option is there than pizza. You don’t have to reach for the takeaway menu, you can make your own. It takes a matter of minutes and even less if you have a special pizza oven. You don’t need a pizza oven to make your own pizza, it just helps. You can create the base or even buy them for added convenience, load it up with your choice of topping and serve with some garlic bread.
