  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin

  • 2 teaspoons dried oregano

  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper

  • 1 cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese, or more to taste

  2. Transfer onion mixture to the bottom of a slow cooker and add remaining beans, chicken broth, shredded chicken, tomatoes, chiles, garlic, cumin, oregano, and cayenne.

You can use 3 teaspoons jarred minced garlic instead of fresh, and frozen onions instead of fresh.

You can use cannellini beans instead of great northern, or a mixture of both.
