White bean pork chili

We had a nice pork loin for dinner last night.  Besides one of my kids and me, no one else likes to eat leftovers in this house, so I have to get creative to make sure food doesn't go to waste. 

I like the typical white bean chicken chili and since white meat pork is mild like chicken, I thought it would translate well to this chili.  It is very quick to put together since the meat is already cooked.  Perfect for a weeknight meal!

Quick white bean pork chili

1/2 large white onion, diced
2 cups cooked pork loin, shredded
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 lg chicken bouillon cube
2 - 15.5 oz cans Bush's white chili beans
1 bean can full of water
1 bean can full of medium salsa verde
1 can Campbell's cream of chicken soup
Shredded Fiesta blend cheese to garnish
Cooked white rice

Saut√© onion in 1 tbsp. oil until translucent.  Add cooked pork and stir until heated through.  Add the rest of the ingredients except the cheese.  Stir to make sure everything is fully blended.  Simmer 20-30 minutes on low.  Serve over white rice and garnish with cheese. 

**Cooked chicken can be substituted for pork.
