Bear's White Bean Chicken Chili

Once again, bring on the soup!  I don't know where the name comes from, I just copied what the food blog called it.  This is a very easy dinner that you can just throw in the crockpot and have ready by dinnertime.  It doesn't get easier than throwing in FROZEN chicken breasts and opening a few cans :)  I highly reccomned putting a handful of cheese on this, slice an avocado, and topping with cilantro, mixing it up and eating with tortilla strips!  If you don't love spicy food, leave out the jalepeno, it has plenty of kick without it!  This recipe comes from The Recipe Club.  It's delicious and will make its way into my soup rotation!

2 cups chicken broth
3 frozen chicken breast
1/2 white or yellow onion, chopped
2 cans mild diced green chiles, undrained
2 cans great northern beans, undriained (I used looked a little to brothy for me)
1 tsp. cumin
1 tsp. oregano
1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
sliced jalapeno peppers, optional (I used a few teaspoons of canned diced jalepenos

Cook in crock pot on high 3-5 hours. About 1/2 hour before serving, cut up chicken and put back in crock pot.

Right before serving, add:

1 cup sour cream
1/2 block cream cheese

top with extra sour cream, cheese, avacado, cilantro, corn chips, pico, ect.

Fast version:

Grill chicken. Bring all other ingredients to a boil. Boil until beans and onion are tender. Add chicken and serve as above.
