Ingredients
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, crushed
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chile
  • peppers
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 small pinch of cayenne pepper (or adjust to your own personal taste)
  • 3-4 cups chicken broth (depending on how thick you like your chili)
  • 1 rotisserie chicken
  • 3 (15 ounce) cans Great Northern white beans, drained
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese (for topping, optional)
Instructions
  1. Heat the oil in a large saucepan over medium-low heat. Slowly cook and stir the onion until tender.
  2. Mix in the garlic, green chile peppers, cumin, oregano and cayenne.
  3. Continue to cook and stir the mixture until tender (a few minutes).
  4. Chop or shred the meat from your rotisserie chicken for your soup.
  5. Mix in the chicken broth, chicken, and two cans of white beans.
