WHITE CHICKEN CHILI

1 pound bag great white northern beans

1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
salt, to taste
4 cups diced cooked chicken breasts (about 2 pounds)

Soak beans overnight (or at least 4 hours prior to cooking)

Combine beans, 6 cups of chicken broth, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot and bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer, uncovered, for 3-4 hours or until beans are soft. Add more chicken broth as necessary.

In a skillet, saute remaining onions in oil until tender. Add chilies and seasonings and mix thoroughly. Add to bean mixture. Add the cooked chicken to the pot and continue to simmer for 1 hour.
