Do you cook for a big family? Or maybe just for one or two?

 

When I got married, it was a huge transition for me, going from a big, hungry family of nine, to just cooking for Nate and me! And, for the past almost 6 years, I’ve been cooking just for 2, which I’ve learned, definitely has its challenges! The majority of recipes out there are designed to feed a family, but at least for us, who rarely eat leftovers, those several-serving dinner recipes just don’t really work well.

 

You should see my recipe box at home! It’s stuffed full of handwritten 3×5 cards and scraps of paper, with our favorite recipes from bloggers and cookbooks, that have been scaled down to yield just two servings.

Sometimes, larger recipes are easy to mentally scale down to yield just 2 servings, and it’s no biggie. But other times, you’re hungry, tired, in a hurry, and you don’t really feel like doing the math to figure out what a third-cup of sauce divided by 6 is…right? Yikes.

So this recipe goes out specifically to you!

This super-flavorful White Chicken Chili for Two is made, start-to-finish, in 30 minutes, with really, very little hands-on time! It’s one of Nate’s and my very favorite fall and winter dishes, because it’s so fast, easy, healthy, naturally gluten free, and so so yummy! :)

 

Perfectly portioned to feed two hungry eaters; add some garlic bread or dinner rolls, and you’re all set for a cozy and delicious homemade dinner!
Enjoy!

 

Ps—If you do want to make this chili for a bigger crowd, just double the ingredients for a family of four, or triple for a table for 6! All the cooking instructions remain the same.
