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

  • 2 green onions, chopped

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons plus 1 tablespoon butter, divided
