White chili became the traditional Halloween meal at our house way back before we had children. White beans were soaked and cooked, a whole chicken was boiled for stock and meat, and the chili ingredients simmered together for an hour or two.
After the children came along and I was responsible for more than handing out candy at the door on Halloween night, I began to play around with the recipe, using canned ingredients that are readily available at the supermarket. What I came up with is a quicker version that I can have on the table in less than half an hour. It still tastes great, and now I’ve got time to get my trick-or-treaters ready. Serve with some corn muffins or tortilla chips and a tossed salad for a hearty autumn meal.
Makes 8 servings.
