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.

Ingredients

  • 6 cups low-sodium chicken broth

  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (about 2 lb.)

  • 2 15-oz. cans black beans, drained and rinsed

  • 1 15-oz. can diced fire-roasted tomatoes

  • 10 ounces frozen corn

  • 1 red bell pepper, chopped

  • 1 yellow onion, chopped

  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and finely chopped, plus sliced for serving

  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin

  • 2 tablespoons chili powder

  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice (from 2 limes)

  • Shredded cheese, sour cream, and hot sauce, for serving

Directions

  1. Combine broth, chicken, beans, tomatoes, corn, bell pepper, onion, chopped jalapeño, cumin, chili powder, salt, and pepper in a 4- to 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on low until chicken is very tender, 6 to 8 hours. Remove chicken and, using 2 forks, shred into bite-size pieces. Stir chicken and lime juice into soup and serve topped with cheese, sour cream, hot sauce, and sliced jalapeño.
