Recipe by Schwabina

This was originally printed in the Louisville Courier-Journal in 1989. I was introduced to it by a college roommate, and through a lot of internet searching, finally found the recipe. This recipe works very nicely in a crockpot.

I like it. But if using canned bean, reduce liquid. Doesn't need all that time to reduce if beans are cooked already (canned). I also agree can use more beans, less chicken.

Otherwise, simple and yummy.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Combine beans, broth, garlic, and half the onions in a large soup pot.
  2. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer until beans are soft (2 hours or more), adding more broth if necessary.
  3. In a skillet, saute remaining onions in oil until tender. Add chiles and seasonings; mix thoroughly. Add to bean mixture. Add chicken and simmer 1 hour.
  4. Serve topped with grated Monterey Jack cheese, salsa, and sour cream. I also like to serve tortilla chips on the side.
