Instant Pot: Bomb Chicken Chili

I woke up craving chili and had to have it.

I am not picky either. Regular chili or white chicken chili are equally delicious to me. But today I only had chicken so that’s what we are making.

Here is my fairly easy version of chicken chili. Filled with simple ingredients and a whole lot of flavor. Let’s do this.

  • 1 tbsp avocado oil
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 green pepper, chopped
  • 2 cans cannellini beans – drained and rinsed
  • 1 can fire roasted corn – drained and rinsed
  • 1 small can of green chiles, mild or hot
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 3 tsp chili powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 /2 tsp pepper
  • 1/2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup of water
  • handful of cilantro, chopped
  • 1/2 cup of sour cream
  • 2 tbsp cream cheese
  • 1 juice of lime
  • Toppings: tortilla chips, avocado, fresh jalapeno and lime.


  1. Start on sauté.
  2. Add the avocado oil, onions, green peppers, beans, corn, water, green chiles, spices. Mix to combine.
  3. Add the chicken on top and press it into the veggies.
  4. Close the lid. Set pressure to Sealing and choose the chili option but set it to low. Not high and 20 minutes.
  5. Once it beeps, allow the pressure to come down naturally for 10 minutes. Release the remaining pressure via Quick Release by turning the pressure valve to Venting position. Be careful and give yourself space.
  6. Once it’s all done, you can now open the lid and remove the chicken onto a plate.
  7. Shred the chicken and return it to the pot.
  8. Now add cilantro, sour cream, cream cheese and lime juice.
  9. Mix to combine and serve.
  10. Top with your favorites and enjoy.

Wasn’t that easy? And delicious? YUM!
