Cook bacon in large stockpot; drain grease. Place flour in zipper-top bag; add chicken and shake to coat. Add chicken to bacon crumbles; lightly brown.
In a crockpot, combine onion, garlic, tomatoes, jalapeños, cilantro, beans, chilies, chicken broth, cumin, oregano and cayenne pepper. Add chicken-bacon mixture, making sure to scrape all the good stuff stuck to the bottom of the pan. Cook on low for 4 to 6 hours or high for 2 to 3 hours or until your house smells wonderful. Serve with tortilla chips, sour cream and Mexican cheese.
Serves 8 to 12.
