In large pot, heat oil over medium-high heat; sauté chicken and transfer to plate. Add carrot, onion, peppers, chili powder, oregano and cumin; cook, stirring, for 5 min or until vegetables are softened.
Add tomatoes, the red and white kidney beans and tomato paste; bring to boil. Reduce heat and boil gently 15 to 20 min or until thickened.
Whisk flour into milk; gradually stir into pot. Add corn and cooked chicken; simmer, stirring, until thickened and chicken is no longer pink inside. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Sprinkle servings with cheese.
For the Vegetarian: Omit chicken. Increase carrot to 2 and add 1 zucchini, chopped, along with other vegetables.
Healthy Eating Tip: Full of beans? Beans are known for their fibre, but did you know that they are a good source of folate? Folate, also found in milk, is a vitamin needed to make red blood cells.
