What fall foods, besides chili, work well for crowds?


According to locals, we may have one of those loooong lovely falls that start quietly and small, granting us a gloriously colorful mid-season zenith, then lingering softly here and there in tiny tucks and corners of hill sides protected from winds whispering "winter's joys are coming..." as they filter the changing days. That said, the chance for fall get-togethers will be increased. What meals work well outdoors in chancy weather?

    This would be really different and I've learned to make chicken and dumplings the easy way by using flour tortillas. Everyone has loved them so far, and they would be something unusual for a fall meal outdoors.

    Thanks much for this idea because corn chowder would add variety to the season's fare.

    Oh yeah, and stew would be great in those muggy style bowls. The ingredients can be prepped ahead and slow cooked on the day… Good 'ole stew! :)

    This is a great option for one of the weekends. Everyone loves the bread bowls and, generally, less stew is required. Thanks!

    Though I had to look posole up I have to now agree! This would definitely make a not-so-common meal for one of the season's weekend get-togethers--thanks!

    Yes, this is a great idea, especially with a toppings bar using items that would not have to be kept hot. And very economical if having several get-togethers throughout the season!

    This meal is quite appealing and I think it would be a great one to mix in with a table featuring chili to add some variety to that more common main dish--thanks!
