A few mornings ago, I woke up and the ocean fog had rolled in overnight and cast a thick gray layer overhead. With a slight chill in the air, I knew that a big pot of this chicken white bean chili verde was about to be simmering on my stove.
I normally calculate how mild or severe the winter has been by how many times I have put on my heavy coat. After my very scientific calculation, I concluded that I had not put it on once this year, not once!
So, as you can imagine, I was all set for a cold day where I could snuggle up with a blanket and some warm soup. By noon, the fog had burned off and it was sunny and warm. This setback, however, did not interrupt my plans. I still made this chili!
