White Chili for 2 Recipe
This chili for two goes over especially well on a cool night. We're racing fans, and I'm frequently asked to bring this dish to the races. I'm happy to do so, because I enjoy it, too. I just double or triple the recipe. —Carol Swainston, Sheridan, Michigan

- 1 to 2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeno pepper
