Creamy White Bean Soup

I found this recipe on pinterest. I pinned it because it said it was made in a crock pot. However the instructions did not say anything about a crock pot. I made it anyway because it looked amazing and quite easy to make. My entire family loved it and we ate it for dinner and lunch for two days. 

I changed a few things to the recipe. I was unable to find a can of southwestern corn so I bought a bag for frozen. I used cooked chicken that I cooked earlier in the morning. I also didn't use land o lakes cheese I used the store brand.  Give it a try and let me know what you think. 

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 lb chicken breast cooked and cut into bite size pieces
2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried oregano
1/2 large onion chopped
1 red bell pepper diced
2 cloves garlic minced
6 cups low sodium chicken broth
3 15 ounce cans of canneli beans drained
1/2 a bag of southwestern frozen corn
16 slices deli white American cheese cut into quarters

Heat oil in large stock pot and add onion, bell pepper and cook 3-4 min. Add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Add cumin, oregano and cooked chicken. 

Stir in Broth, beans and corn. Cook until it comes to a boil. Cover and cook on low for 15 minutes. Add cheese stir until melted . Simmer and serve.
