Cook time
Total time
Recipe type: Soup
  • 4 cans white beans, drained
  • 1½ lbs shredded smoked chicken (BBQ rotisserie chicken works fine in a pinch.)
  • 2 Tablespoons minced garlic
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 1 small can diced green chilies
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 4 teaspoons dried oregano

  1. Pour 1 can of beans into a shallow bowl and mash with a fork until smooth. Alternately, you can pulse them in a food processor. Put mashed beans and all other ingredients into a slow cooker. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Season with salt and pepper to taste, and serve with shredded cheese, sour cream, crushed tortilla chips, diced avocado, chopped cilantro, etc.
Can't find smoked chicken anywhere? Try your favorite BBQ joint; most BBQ places have some sort of smoked chicken on the menu. You can also check your local grocery store for BBQ-flavored rotisserie chicken, which has usually been rubbed with some kind of smoky flavoring.
