Step 1

Combine beans, chicken stock, garlic and half the onions in a large soup pot bringing to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until beans are very soft, 3 hours or more. (Covered pot will reduce cook time and evaporation of broth, but add more broth if necessary).

Meanwhile, sauté remaining onions in oil until translucent. Add chilies and seasonings mixing well. Add this and chicken to bean mixture when beans are soft and continue to simmer for 1 hour.

Serve topped with grated cheese and sour cream.
