1 tsp garlic powder or crushed garlic
1 tsp chili powder
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp dried cilantro(optional)

1 tsp -1tbsp taco seasonings

tortilla chips

1. Place onions in crockpot, then add the chicken.
2. Pour tomatoes, beans, salsa and chicken broth on top. 
3. Add in the spices
4. Cook on high for 6-7 hours.
5. Add in the vegetables around the last hour of cooking.

Et voila, enjoy!
