Instructions

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. Lightly coat the interior

of the ceramic pot of the Cuisinart® Slow Cooker with cooking spray. 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. 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 3 hours and press

High. Once time elapses, reset time to 4 hours and press Simmer; slow cooker will

automatically switch to Warm again when cooking time has elapsed. 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.
