10 servings

  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 lb. rotisserie chicken, shredded
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chilies ( I used 3 big fresh Jalapeño )

  • 2 cans great northern beans, drained, divided ( I used Cannellini beans )
  • 1 can pinto beans, drained
  • 1 cup shredded Mexican blend cheese
  • 1 chopped jalapeno pepper, optional
  • Cilantro, for garnish

1) Add olive oil to a dutch oven or large pot. Heat on medium heat, add onions. Cook for 3-5 minutes until slightly softened, stirring occasionally.

Add garlic, sauté for one minute.

Add chicken, chicken broth, green chilies, cumin, oregano and cayenne. Reduce heat to low and allow to simmer.

Using a food processor or a potato masher, mash one can of great northern beans until it resembles a chunky paste. Add the paste and remaining two cans of beans to the pot.

Partially cover and allow to simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. The bean paste will help

Top with cheese, jalapeños and cilantro as desired.
