  • 3 cups chicken or vegetable stock
  • 1 can petite diced tomatoes

  1. In a large stock pot, heat olive oil over medium-high heat.  Add diced onions and cook until tender.  Season the chicken with salt and pepper, and any selection of the aforementioned spices, and toss in the hot pot.  Cook for 5-7 minutes, or until juices run clear.
  2. Add the chicken stock, green chiles, diced tomatoes, beans, chili powder, paprika, cumin, chipotle chili powder, white pepper, and cayenne pepper, and stir well.
