supermarkets.

In 5-quart or larger pot, heat oil over medium heat. Add onions and saute
along with bell pepper, jalapeño and garlic. Cook until vegetables are
tender.

In another container, combine water, chicken base, lime juice, sugar,
cornstarch and seasonings. Add to vegetable mixture.

Add tomatillos and diced green chiles to pot; bring to boil. Add beans
and chicken; simmer 10 minutes.

Serve topped with cheese and sour cream if desired, with tortilla chips on
the side.

This recipe yields about 4 quarts.

Comments: This dish is thick, spicy and dark in color. Its consistency
is more like a chicken stew or soup than a chili.
