White Chicken Chili

3- 15 oz. cans great northern beans or cannellini beans, drained
2 cups cooked chicken (I usually crock-pot my chicken in the morning and make this when the chicken is ready).
1 med. onion
2 med. red peppers
1-4 oz can diced green chilies
3 cloves garlic (or scant ½ tsp. garlic powder)
3 ½ cups chicken broth
2 tsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. dried oregano

Cook onion, peppers, and garlic in pot with a little oil or butter until tender. Combine all other ingredients and heat until simmered through, about ½ hour. Don’t boil or else the chicken will get tough and beans will get mushy. If your kids have an aversion to onions or peppers, just leave them out (it is still so good with either of those omitted!) Good by itself, or served with sour cream, tortilla chips, or cheese quesadillas.

OR- if you have 2 cups prepared chicken, put the cooked chicken along with everything else in the crockpot on high 4-5 hours or low 8-10 hours. No need to precook the veggies. This recipe may be doubled or tripled.
