for the chicken in this recipe which is very hearty, provides high fiber and
delicious gives flavor!

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
3 x 15 ounce cans great northern beans, rinsed
4 cups reduced sodium or reduced fat chicken broth
4 cups diced cooked skinless chicken or turkey (about 1 pound
)2 tablespoons cider vinegar

Heat your oil in a large pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until onions soften up. Stir in the chilies, oregano, cumin and cayenne. Cook and stir for
5 minutes. Stir in the beans and broth and bring to a simmer. Continue to cook
and stir occasionally for 20 minutes. Take care not to mash the beans while
stirring. Add the chicken or turkey and vinegar and cook for 5 minutes more.
