 12 oz jar of salsa (about 1 1/2 cups)
 1 ½ cups low-sodium chicken broth
 1 yellow onion, diced

 7 oz can green chiles
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 tsp cayenne pepper

 shredded cheese
 plain Greek yogurt as a sour cream substitue



Combine all stew ingredients in slow cooker in order of ingredient list.

Garnish each bowl individually upon serving with desired ingredients.
