16 oz. medium salsa
1 - 2 tsp. cumin (to taste)
1 tsp. chili powder
4 c. chicken or vegetable broth
4 - 6 c. Northern beans
8 oz. Monteray Jack cheese, cubed (optional)
Combine all ingredients (except cheese if using) in Crockpot and cook for 4 - 6 hours on high. Lay chicken breasts on top (they do not need to be cooked because the will cook with the soup). With 30 minutes left, add cheese and cook until melted and combined.
