This chili is great for busy nights. It comes together in a hurry, but has a flavor that no one will think you skimped on.
  • 2 (15-ounce cans) cannellini or other white beans, rinsed and drained
  • 4 cups chicken broth (homemade or canned)
  • 1 (4 ounce) can chopped green chilies , undrained
  • 1½ - 2 cups cooked chicken, diced or shredded
  • 2 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 3-4 Tablespoons lime juice
  • Salt to taste (will vary depending on homemade or canned broth)
  • Shredded Cheddar or Monterey-Jack cheese
  1. Combine all ingredients except cheese in soup-pot.
  2. Cook over medium-high heat until boiling. Simmer for 10 minutes, or until desired thickness.
  3. Garnish with shredded cheese.
This can also be cooked in the crockpot, but it will be more souplike (as pictured). Dump all ingredients in crockpot and cook on high 1 hour or low 2-3 hours (or longer - it won't hurt). Garnish with cheese.
