Black Bean & Salsa Slow Cooker Chicken

First of all, this is my first instructable, so comments & criticisms welcome!  Second, this recipe is not originally mine, I've modified it slightly to try some new things!

Original recipe:

It might not look as pretty as the original recipe's did, but it tasted really good!  That's mine in the picture above:

Step 1: Ingredients

It's a little blurred, but you need:
1 lb. of chicken (not shown - hopefully you know what chicken looks like!  I think I actually ended up with about 1.5 lbs.)
1 can of Cream of Mushroom or Cream of Chicken Soup (I used chicken)
1 Cup of Salsa (Mine all came out really fast, and was about 1 1/2 cups, I just went with it!)
1 packet of Taco Seasoning (I used Chicken Taco Seasoning)
1 Cup of Sour Cream (Not pictured till later, because you don't need it till later!)

Optional
Cheddar Cheese
Beans

I decided to add black beans to mine, and I didn't take a before picture, but there was 1 cup of dry beans, I soaked them overnight in Chicken Broth (Couldn't find anything online saying you couldn't, everyone just uses water, so I thought HA, I'll try something different!!)  They doubled in size after about 10 hours, I just soaked them overnight.  It isn't the greatest comparison picture, but the beans on the left were before soaking, beans on the right are 10 hours later.  So mine had 2 cups of black beans, too - to my wife's displeasure. :)  (Only because she doesn't like beans....not because of their musical qualities!
