This recipe started with me wondering what to do with half a jar of salsa, and evolved over the years. It's very low-fat, and very tasty. Use at least a 3 qt slow cooker. If you use a larger one, you can add one can of Jane's chili Beans. Yum. Makes a thick soup, almost a stew consistency. It is slightly spicy. If you want it spicier, use hotter salsa, more cayenne, and/or more jalapeno sauce. I've also made this with 2 turkey thighs instead of 4 chicken thighs.
