Fabulous served with fresh corn bread on a cold evening!

Makes 11 cups
PREP TIME: 10 minutes
COOK TIME: 45 minutes

1 jar (48 ounces) great northern beans
2 cups (9 ounces) cooked diced chicken (I've use canned with good results too)

1 tablespoon garlic crushed garlic
2 teaspoons ground cumin
1/4 teaspoon ground cloves
1 teaspoon ground oregano
1 teaspoon cilantro
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
2 cans (4.5 ounces each) chopped mild green chilies

Combine beans, chicken, onion and garlic powder, cumin, cloves, oregano, pepper, chilies and chicken broth in a stock pot or large sauce pan. Bring to a boil over medium high heat.
Add cheese. Reduce heat to medium low and simmer for 30 minutes. Serve hot. If desired, garnish each bowl with sour cream and grated Monterey Jack, Pepper Jack OR cheddar cheese.
