Walt’s Chili and Beans from Carnation Café at Disneyland Park – GEEK EATS

This weekend we are continuing to celebrate Disneyland’s 65th birthday and also the man who’s dreams made Disneyland a reality. One way to celebrate this special weekend, man, and dream is to recreate one of his favorite foods at home. Walt absolutely loved chili and beans. Walt loved how hardy and filling this was and was known to be a regular part of his diet.

Through the years, there have been various iterations of the recipe known as Walt’s Chili and Beans. In fact, the Walt Disney Archives has a recipe from 1958 for the Chili. Through the years, the recipe has been tweaked by Disney chefs for park guests. Two years ago, DAPS MAGIC shared one version of Walt’s Chili and Beans. Today, thanks to the Disney Parks Blog, another version is available for you to enjoy during this weekend celebration of Disneyland’s 65th anniversary. This one is from Carnation Cafe on Main Street, USA! Give it a shot and then share how it turned out in the comments below!

Happy Birthday, Disneyland!
