Latin slow cooker: Mexican chicken posole (RECIPE)

What do you want out of your Latin slow cooker meal today? I know what I want: a hearty, warming soup. If you live anywhere in the Northeast U.S., then there's a pretty big snow storm happening today and tomorrow and I, for one, am preparing my making this delicious Mexican chicken posole in my slow cooker right now. 

This rich soup is absolutely perfect to serve in the winter, especially in this kind of weather. The thing I love about making it in my slow cooker, though, is that it takes very little effort and still comes out great. I know my family is going to be enjoying this dish all weekend. And, seriously, why wouldn't they? The combination of chicken and Latin spices is just perfect. Yum!
