DEAR KAREN: Owner Sally Marston sent us the recipe created by her husband, Otis, who has done most of the cooking for the restaurant. Sounds good. Thanks.

MARSTON'S WHITE LIGHTNING CHILI

1 (1-pound) package dried small white beans

Chicken stock

2 large onions, chopped

3 cloves garlic, diced

Dash ground cloves

Combine beans, enough chicken stock to cover beans, onions, garlic, cloves, cumin, oregano, chiles and jalapenos in large saucepan. (Stock should be 2 inches above bean mixture.) Cook, adding stock or water as necessary to keep beans covered, until beans are tender, about 1 hour.

Meanwhile, grill or broil chicken breast halves until done on both sides. Cool, then dice chicken. Add to chili mixture. Garnish each serving with cheese and guacamole.
