Serve with chopped green onions (aka scallions), monterey jack cheese or pepper jack, light sour cream or yogurt and tortilla chips or strips of baked tortilla as toppings. Leftover chicken or turkey, rotisserie chicken or canned chicken all work well for this recipe.


Add olive oil to bottom of soup pot or dutch oven, just enough to cover bottom of pot and heat at medium to medium-high heat. Chop onions and jalalpeno, dropping into pot as you go. Add chicken and cook until onions are tender and chicken is browned on all sides. Add flour, stir and allow to cook for a couple of minutes. Add green chilis and white beans, half of the cilantro (if fresh), cumin, chili powder, paprika, salt and pepper. Stir in almond milk (if using) and stock. Allow soup to come to a boil, then reduce heat to simmer and allow it to cook for 10-15 more minutes.
