Volcano Chili

I do not like chili. Walter loves chili. I do, however, like this chili (my own recipe). However, I have a sensitivity to tomatoes that poses a problem: If I eat anything spicy that is in a tomato sauce, my throat swells, and I cannot breathe. So, grilled cheese for me tonight. But Walter is quite pleased.

Volcano Chili



Walter likes to load his with shredded cheese and saltines. If I could eat it, I think it would be great with the grilled cheese I am having.

-1/2 medium onion, diced
-3 cloves garlic, minced
-1 chipotle pepper in adobo, minced

*Bow* Walter usually eats it from a can, but why, when I can make it myself so much better?
