Here’s what you need:

2 T olive oil

Place one can of the beans in a food processor with a splash of the broth and pulse till smooth. Set this aside. In a soup pot heat the oil. Sauté the onion, jalapeño, chilis, and garlic. Cook until the vegetables are soft. Add the seasonings. Stir. Add the chicken, beans, broth and beans from the food processor (these act as a natural thickener). Stir in the lime juice and cilantro.
