1 c. chopped onion
2 (4-oz.) cans chopped green chile peppers, drained
2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
2 tbsp. oil
5-6 c. chicken broth
3 cans of white beans, drained (Navy, Great Northern, etc.)

1 tsp. dried oregano, crushed
tsp. ground red pepper
tsp. salt
8 oz. boneless, skinless chicken breast cooked and chopped
