3 cups chicken broth, divided
1-1/2 cups (6 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese

Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the chicken, onion, green chiles, oregano and cumin in oil for 3-4 minutes or until chicken is browned and vegetables are crisp-tender. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
Transfer to a 3-qt. slow cooker. In a small bowl, mash 1 cup of beans; add 1/2 cup broth and stir until blended. Add to the slow cooker with the remaining beans and broth. Cover and cook on low for 3 to 3-1/2 hours or until heated through.
