The first cool front of the fall always energizes Texans to think about cherished things: football, a respite from yard work and making a big pot of chili. This year, though, folks at Grace Episcopal Church in Galveston have been thinking about chili all summer, perfecting the recipe for the chili they’ll serve Saturday at the church’s first chili supper.

“We’ve experimented with four or five different combinations before we found just the right one,” chili cook Jeff Kilgore said. “It’s a Texas chuckwagon chili. We tried several levels of spiciness and came back to one that still has some heat but works for almost everyone.”
