On a cold winter's day there's nothing like a good bowl of chili. This week Rockit, 22 W Hubbard St, celebrates the bowl o' beans with five different creations, one for each weekday. The servings are large enough to satisfy any appetite and the recipes are enough to satisfy any palate. They've even got a vegan option that's available each day. If you think chili is best served as a condiment then get the Chili Mac & Cheese ($14) or the Chili Cheese Fries ($10), piled high with turkey chili, cheddar cheese, and jalapenos.

Here's the full line-up:

Monday, January 21: Andouille Chili ($10) Smoked Andouille sausage, red bell peppers, black-eyed peas, tomatoes, aged white cheddar
Tuesday, January 22Bacon Chili ($10) Braised Applewood smoked bacon, corn tortilla strips,chives, bacon sour cream
Wednesday, January 23Beef Chili ($10) Cremini mushrooms, roasted portobello mushrooms, navy beans, truffle pecorino cheese 
Thursday, January 24Pork Chili ($10) Ancho braised pork shoulder, pinto beans, pico de gallo, queso fresco
Friday, January 25Chicken Chili ($10) Chipotle braised chicken, white beans, cilantro, avocado salsa
