If there were an award for the most magical kitchen appliance, the slow cooker would win hands down. For this intensely flavorful soup, all you have to do is combine the main ingredients, turn it on, and voila! Taco soup. Tongs will give extra stability when you pull the hot chicken out of the soup. Once they’re on the cutting board, switch to two forks to shred into bite-sized pieces. If you don’t have black beans on hand, pinto would work well. When you’re ready to serve, top each bowl with cheese, sour cream, cilantro, and—if you really want to go wild—tortilla chips.
