White Chicken Chili

WHITE CHICKEN CHILI (along with editorial comments) -- enjoy!, Blythe Bieber (from Intranet)

1 48 oz jar Great Northern White Beans
1 cup chopped onion
2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves garlic (or 1 heaping teaspoon of the bottled garlic if you're lazy like me)
1 small can chopped green chilis
1 large can mushrooms (optional)
2 whole chicken breasts (cooked and chopped) (but what actually works much better is to use 2 large cans of white chicken meat -- found near the tuna -- it's more shredded and certainly much less work -- although more expensive than buying chicken breasts and doing yourself)
2 teaspoons ground cumin
2 teaspoons oregano
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (can substitute a 1/2 teaspoon of white pepper)
1 can chicken broth (if you drain beans really well -- you might need a little more chicken broth)
2 tablespoons lime juice (a lot of recipes don't have this but I think it gives it an extra little zing)

Saute chopped onion and garlic in butter
Add chopped green chilis and beans
Add broth and chicken
Add remaining ingredients and simmer 1 to 2 hours (I always throw everything into crockpot and cook anywhere from 1 hour to 8 eight hours -- can't really overcook it)
Top with shredded cheese, sour cream and crackers if desired

It's really easy to double or triple the recipe and serve to a crowd!
