Body Beast Approved White Chicken Chili Recipe

This recipes is. amazing.  Best of all, it's Beast approved.

Loaded with protein.  GOOD carbs.  Healthy Fats can be added.  It's a recipe that is as diverse as it is delicious.

This recipe originates from the cookbook, Vegan Cooking for Carnivores.  However, with a husband that needs a hearty meal, I decided to add chicken to it.  You can leave the chicken out however, and just have the beans, or you can add Gardein Chick'n to it.  I have made it a number of ways and it's been delicious each time!

Without further ado, here is the recipe:

Ingredients:

*2 Tbsp. grapeseed or safflower oil
*2 white onions, diced
*4 garlic cloves, chopped
*2 4 oz. cans of mild green chilies
*1 1/2 Tbsp. ground cumin
*1/2 tsp. cayenne pepper
*1 Tbsp. oregano
*4 14 oz. cans of Great Northern White Beans
*5 Cups Vegetable or Chicken Broth (be sure it's low sodium for Beast approval!)
*1 pound of chicken, or 2 10 oz. packages of Gardein Chick'n Scallopini chopped (if doing the vegan version)

****I also added****
Fresh pepper jack cheese for garnish, as well as fresh cilantro.  You can also add green scallions.  I also added brown rice, and poured the chili on top of the brown rice when I served it in bowls.  While the soup is simmering, I put two cups of brown rice, along with four cups of water into my rice maker.

Directions:

*In a large pot, pour the oil in, and wait until heated.  Then add the diced onions and chicken (if doing chick'n, you can wait until the end to add it).  Stir frequently until the onions are translucent and the chicken is cooked through.
*Add the garlic and cook for another minute or two
*Then add the green chilies, cumin, oregano and cayenne pepper, and stir well
*add the beans and broth and bring to simmer
*Once done, pour into bowls (adding the rice first, if you are adding that), then, once the chili is in the bowls feel free to add the cheese, cilantro and/or green scallions
