We have lots of visitors on our 10-acre farm, so I like to make down-home dishes. Whenever I serve this chili, I'm asked for the recipe, which I'm happy to share.


  • 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) chicken broth
  • 2 cans (16 ounces each) great northern beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 can (4 ounces) chopped green chiles
  • 2 cups cubed cooked chicken
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper


  1. In a large saucepan over medium heat, saute onion in oil until tender. Add remaining ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until heated through.
