 Here's a recipe that I've made with great success- even with SAD folks.  I
 adapted it from a white bean turkey chili recipe.
 White Bean Chili
 1 lb white beans (like great northerns)
 2 large onions, diced
 2 Tbs ground cumin
 1 Tbs chili powder
 1 tsp poultry seasoning
 2-4 oz  cans diced green chiles
 1 8 oz can salsa verde (optional)
 7 c "chicken-like" or veggie stock
 2 bay leaves
 1/2 lb tomatillos, cleaned & quartered
 1 c  fresh cilantro, coarsely chopped
 Salt and pepper to taste
 2 Tbs fresh lime juice
 1 c chopped green onions
 optional - ff sour cream
 Soak beans overnight or use quick soak method (bring beans and water to cover
 by 1" to a boil for 5 min.  Turn off heat and cover.  Let sit 1 hour, then
 proceed).  Pour off soaking water and cover beans with fresh water and bring
 to full boil.  Lower heat and simmer.  While beans simmer, in a large soup
 kettle or dutch oven, saute onions using your favorite ff method (I use a
 little stock), when translucent, add cumin, chili pd, poultry seasoning,
 green chiles and salsa verde.  Saute for 5 minutes, adding a little stock if
 it begins to stick.  Then add the rest of the stock, bay leaves, tomatillos
 and 3/4 c cilantro.  Bring to a boil and simmer uncovered while beans
 continue to cook.  When beans are just tender (1-2 hours) add them to the
 soup pot and simmer everything together for another 1/2 hour.  Season with
 salt and pepper to taste.  Just before serving, add the rest of the cilantro
 and the lime juice, stir to blend.  Ladle into big bowls and top with green
 onions and an optional dollop of ff sour cream.
