  1. Heat oil in a large kettle and add onion and garlic.

  2. Cook for a few minutes until tender.

  3. Stir in beans, broth, cumin, oregano, and cayenne.

  4. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes.

  5. Add chicken.

  6. Cover and simmer for another 10 minutes.

  7. Salt to taste and add more cayenne, if needed.

  8. Garnish with sour cream, green chili sauce, chopped green onions, shredded Monterey jack cheese, crushed tortilla chips, or any combination of these. We like fat-free sour cream.

  9. Note: The cans of beans can be substituted with 1 lb. dried Great Northern Beans. Soak beans in 8 cups of cold water overnight in a covered pan in the refrigerator. Drain and rinse.

  10. Note: As chili simmers, you can mash the beans slightly to thicken the chili. I don't do this because I prefer it chunkier.
