1 3/4 cups Chicken broth
1 Tbsp. diced Jalapeno Pepper (optional)

Soak beans in water to cover for 24 hours; drain.
In crock pot or large kettle, combine beans, 5 1/4 cups chicken broth, garlic, onion, white pepper, salt, oregano, cumin and cloves.
Simmer covered for at least 5 hours until beans are tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in green chilies, diced chicken and 1 3/4 cups chicken broth. For hotter taste, add jalapeno.
