Slow Cooker Salsa Chicken Rice Soup

 Next time I make this I will only use 1/3 cup (1/2 recipe) of Simply Salsa. Everyone except my husband had to add a little sour cream to tone down the heat. It was really good even though it was spicier than I normally eat. I used Brown Rice this time and I think Quinoa would work for next time, too.  I also used Organic Chicken Broth.
