Ingredients:
A little olive oil
1 onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, crushed (I just used minced garlic)
1/2 jalapeno, seeded and diced
1 can chopped green chiles (you can use a 4 oz. or 7 oz. can, depending how much kick you want it to have)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1 teaspoon oregano
salt and pepper
a little italian seasoning
1/4 teaspoon cayenne (I start here and then taste and add according to how spicy I like it)
2 cans (14.5 oz. each) chicken broth (I use the Gluten Free boxed kind)
2 to 3 chicken breasts (enough to equal 3 cups chopped cooked chicken)
3 cans white beans, drained and rinsed

Directions:
1. Cube chicken breasts and heat a little olive oil in the bottom of a stock pot. Add cubed chicken breast to olive oil over medium high heat seasoning with a little extra minced garlic, salt, pepper and italian seasoning until cooked through. Set aside and reserving stock pot.

2. In the same stock pot heat onions in a little more olive oil. Mix in the garlic, jalapeno, green chiles, cumin, oregano and cayenne scraping the bottom of the pan and cook about 3 minutes.

3. Mix in the chicken broth, chicken and beans. Bring to a boil and then reduce to a simmer for about 20 to 30 minutes.

4. Adjust chili to taste with salt, pepper, cayenne and extra broth if you like a thinner chili. Serve with cilantro to garnish and enjoy!
