Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 onion (finely chopped)
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 can green chilies, drained, diced (4 oz)
  • 2 teaspoons cumin, ground
  • 2 cans Great Northern Beans, canned (15.5 ounce can, low sodium)
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken (cooked, cubed)
  • 1 can chicken broth, low-sodium (14.5 oz can)
  • 1/2 cup mozzarella cheese, shredded
  • fresh parsley (optional for garnish)

Directions

  1. Wash hands with soap and water.
  2. In a large saucepan, heat oil. Add onion and cook until tender.
  3. Add green chilies, beans (do not drain), chicken broth, garlic powder, pepper, ground cumin, and chicken. Bring to a boil.

Notes

To reduce sodium content of soups, drain and rinse canned beans, use low-sodium broth, and add your own spices instead of using a seasoning packet.
