This is a very lovely dish from a friend from my past.
1 32 oz. carton chicken broth
1 lg. onion, chopped
2 rounded tsp minced garlic (or 3 cloves minced)
1 48 oz jar great northern beans
2 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp oregano
5-6 dashes tabasco (I use much more)
2-3 lg boneless skinless chicken breast halves.
1/4 cup orzo (optional)
Shredded cheese topping
Boil chicken 45 minutes - 1 hour. Shred w/ fork. Set aside. (I usually make a double or triple batch).
In a large pot, pour a bit of broth. Add onion and garlic and cook stirring until onion is wilted. Add beans with liquid. Add cumin, oregano, tabasco and remaining broth. Bring to a boil. Add chicken. Combine well and simmer covered for at least 30 minutes. If desired add orzo in last 15 minutes.
Serve with tortilla chips. I like to crush tortilla chips and sprinkle into my serving.
