I don’t know what possessed me, but white chili occurred to me the other day. I thought for sure I had a recipe that was well received once, and started scouring my resources for it. Of course, I couldn’t find it. And so, on to the internet I went. I found a recipe but used what I had on hand and the few ingredients I remembered when I went to the store. The result was a spicy dish (which husband said was good spicy because it masked the taste of the beans). I’d say, generally it got provisional “make again status.”
