salsa verde soup

This soup is so yummy! I love anything with salsa or a Mexican flare, and this soup fits the bill!

1 c. cooked and chopped chicken
1 c. chopped carrots
1 can great northern beans (drained and rinsed)
1 can red beans (drained and rinsed)
1 red onion (chopped)
1 Tbls. olive oil
3 cloves garlic
3 Tbls. fresh cilantro or 3 tsp. dried cilantro
1/2 tsp. salt
2 tsp. cumin
1 orange
1  14 oz jar of salsa verde (I use Trader Joe's brand)
1  4 oz can diced green chilies
32 oz of chicken broth

Saute in oil the carrots and onion until tender. Take the orange and finely shred 1 tsp. of the peel. Juice the orange and add both to the soup. Add the remainder of the ingredients. Bring soup to a simmer and then turn down to low and let simmer for 2 hours. Enjoy!
