White Chili

It’s a snowy Spring day here and I am planning to serve leftovers fantastic chili/soup for dinner.  I say, “chili/soup” because you can control the consistency.  We like it more soupy, so I simmer it with a lid.  If you prefer something thicker, leave the lid off.  It’s good either way.

3/4c yellow onion, chopped
6 cloves garlic, minced
