  3. Cook on Low until the chicken pulls apart easily with 2 forks, 3 to 5 hours. Shred chicken in the soup with 2 forks. Continue cooking for 1 hour more. Ladle into bowls and top with Cheddar cheese.

The received beans gave the soups broth a gritty texture. It was really thick and more like a chili than a soup. Did not like at all
