Spicy Chicken and White Bean Soup

I found this yummy quick-fix soup on the Sisters Cafe.  It seems like everyone is posting soup recipes lately, and it got me in the mood for some!  On the Sisters Cafe, they called this Fantastic Tortilla Soup, but I am changing the name, considering I already have tortilla soup recipes listed...this will make this one easier to find later!  It really was the fastest "tortilla soup" I've ever made, and it is so good!  It is actually more like a chicken chili, if you ask me.  The lime squeezed over top was wonderful...don't leave it out!

Spicy Chicken and White Bean Soup

1Tb olive oil
1 large onion chopped
1 can diced green chilis
1 lb chicken-cooked and shredded-I used 1 Sam's Club can of chicken instead to make it even faster
¼ tsp cayenne pepper (opt.)
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 16 oz can diced tomatoes
1 can small white beans
1 can chicken broth
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1/2 lime squeezed over soup
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot, heat oil and sauté onion and chilies. Saute until tender. Add the chicken and spices. Add tomatoes, beans and fresh cilantro. Add the broth.

Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes or longer to bring out flavors. Ladle into bowls & garnish.
