This chicken tortilla soup is thought to originate from the Tarascan people of the Michoacán area in Mexico. Dozens of variations of this soup exist, often featuring a spicy tomato broth with various chilies. One much loved garnish is chicharrón in place of crispy tortilla chips, which works beautifully if you have on hand!

4 cups cooked shredded rotisserie chicken
Pinch kosher salt, to taste

16 ounce can black beans, drained and rinsed
