Black and White Chicken Chili

This is one of those recipes that you can change up any way you like. We eat a lot of chicken and fish but you can make it with ground beef, stew meat, venison, pork, beans or no beans....
I like this version....but then I use any excuse to make something with cumin and that flavor!!
