  • 2 T olive oil
  • 1 onion-medium chopped
  • 1/2 tsp sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp ground black pepper
  • 2 large chicken breasts
  • 2-3 cups cannellini beans sometimes I use them whole and sometimes I puree for a creamy chili
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 2 tsp oregano
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 3 cups homemade chicken broth
  • shredded cheddar cheese for garnish
  • fresh cilantro for garnish
  • sour cream for garnish
  • avocado for garnish


  • Heat olive oil in skillet.
  • Chop and add onion, salt and pepper, add to skillet. Saute until soft.
  • While onions are sautéing, chop chicken into cubes and run beans through blender if you'd like them pureed and place both in slow cooker.
  • Add onions to slow cooker with garlic, oregano and cumin.
  • Turn on low for 4-6 hours depending upon size of slow cooker (the big ones cook up faster in my experience).
  • Prep the garnishes and serve.
