  1. Pick over beans and discard any stones or bits of dirt. Soak beans overnight (8 hours) in water to cover by 3 inches. Drain and rinse. 
  2. Lightly coat the interior of the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker with cooking spray. 
  3. Heat oil in a Cuisinart® 10-inch skillet over medium heat. Add onions and garlic. Cook until onions are soft, about 5 minutes; transfer to pot. 
  4. Place stock, beans and chicken in slow cooker. Add salsa, cumin, oregano, coriander, salt, pepper and jalapeños. Cover and press the on/off button to turn the unit on. Set time to 6 hours and press Simmer; slow cooker will automatically switch to Warm when cooking time has elapsed. 
  5. One half hour before serving, turn heat to High; stir in corn. Serve with wedge of lime. 

Hint: Sliced or diced avocado makes a good garnish for White Chicken Chili.
