Spicy White Chili Recipe
Meet the Cook: As far as I was concerned, the original version of this dish was fine. But, with a 14-year-old son who can't get enough spice, I added green chilies and other seasonings until I "discovered" a quick and easy chili that he's wild about. -Carlene Bailey, Bradenton, Florida
