White Bean - Rajas Soup

To make this more healthy and lower in calories I used Fat Free Sour Cream and 2% Mexican 5 cheese from Kraft. This is also good with some leftover Chicken added for additional Calories

2 cups chopped white onion
2 cups chopped seeded poblano chile
1 cup chopped red bell pepper
4 garlic cloves, minced
8 C fat-free, less-sodium chicken broth
2 (15-ounce) cans navy beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 C Tomatoes either diced or sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tablespoons ground cumin
1 cup (4 ounces) shredded queso chihuahua or Monterey Jack cheese
2 1/2 tablespoons reduced-fat sour cream 2 Tbls Olive Oil

Heat a Dutch oven coated with the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add onion, chile, red bell pepper, and garlic; sauté 5 minutes. Add broth; bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add the beans, juice, and cumin. Cover and let stand 5 minutes. Ladle about 1 1/2 cups soup into each of 8 bowls, and top each serving with about 3 tablespoons cheese and 1 1/2 teaspoons sour cream.
