Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Lightly coat an unheated medium skillet with cooking spray. Heat skillet over medium-high heat. Brown chicken in hot skillet; drain chicken, if necessary.

  • In a 1-1/2-quart slow cooker combine chicken, beans, broth, the water, onion, sweet pepper, chile pepper, cumin, oregano, white pepper, and garlic.

  • Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 5 to 6 hours or on high-heat setting for 2-1/2 to 3 hours. If no heat setting is available, cook for 4 to 5 hours. Sprinkle each serving with tomato, green onion, and cheese.


Tips: Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

For easy cleanup, line your slow cooker with a disposable slow cooker liner. Add ingredients as directed in recipe. Once your dish is finished cooking, spoon the food out of your slow cooker and simply dispose of the liner. Do not lift or transport the disposable liner with food inside.
