- 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) reduced-sodium chicken broth

This is Very Good I don't drain the beans, added 2 cans of Mexican corn, which I didn't drain either. Served with sour cream and shredded cheese. Big family hit. Spicy enough for us without cayenne pepper!

Wow---this was such a delicious, easy weeknight meal. I used leftover chicken from baked chicken quarters the night before. I also used 1 can great northern beans and 1 can of pinto beans with jalapenos. The flavor was fantastic!!!

Very easy and tasty. I used shredded chicken that I had leftover rather than ground chicken, and everyone loved it. We'll be making this again. (It's great served with corn muffins, too!)
