V-grrrl's White Chili Soup

Last week, v-grrrl whipped up this stunning soup while I was visiting her.

White Chili Recipe

About 1 quart of chicken broth
2-3 cans of plain Great Northern Beans
1 or 2 4 oz. cans of diced green chiles
About 1 c. water
About two cups of cooked chicken or turkey
1 medium to large onion, chopped
2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper

Saute the onion and garlic in a splash of olive oil until tender. If necessary, you can can cook two diced boneless chicken breasts in the oil at the same time.

Add the broth and water. I normally drain the beans of most of the liquid before adding them. I don't drain the chiles. (I only added one can when Di was here.)

Add the dry seasonings, bring to a boil and then lower temp. Cover and let simmer for about an hour.

You can adjust the ingredients to suit your taste. You can add corn to this recipe too, if you like.

Makes about eight servings.

It's truly delicious!
