“I came up with this recipe after eating the White Chicken Chili at Ruby Tuesday's. My wife liked it because it wasn't spicy, and she can only take a little bit of spice. When I cook this, I am aiming to make it just spicy enough for her, and then I add chili sauce for myself. If you like hot, feel free to add more chili peppers, or even a habenero, which would give the chili a nice smokey hot flavor. Also, feel free to change up ingredients with the season: if it is summer, use summer squash, but if it is winter, you might substitute a yam for the squash. The trick is to stick with yellow and orange veggies. This is really good served over brown rice.”
