Servings 6 people


  • 1 lb Boneless Skinless Chicken Breast
  • 30 oz Northern Beans, rinsed and drained
  • ½ cup Onion, diced
  • 1 ¼ cup Chicken Broth
  • 4 oz Can of Green Chiles
  • 4 oz Cream Cheese
  • 2 teaspoon Chili
  • 1 teaspoon Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper

Optional Toppings

  • Avocado
  • Jalapeno Peppers
  • Cilantro


  • Rinse and drain the northern beans and add them to the Instant Pot
  • Add in the corn, onions, green chilis and spices.
  • Place the chicken breast on top of the other ingredents and pour the chickem stock in the instant pot.
  • Place the lid on top of the pressure cooker. Make sure to turn the valve to “seal” and set the pressure cooker to “Beans/Chili.” If your pressure cooker does not have that setting, set it to cook on high pressure for 15 minutes.
  • The instant pot takes approximately 10 minutes to come to pressure. 
  • Let the pressure cooker do a natural release for 10 minutes and then carefully do a quick release by opening the valve.
  • Remove the chicken and place in a small bowl, use two forks to shred.  Or you can use your stand or hand mixer to shred the chicken even more. Add the chicken back to the instant pot and stir the chili well until all of the ingredients are combined and the cream cheese has melted. 
  • Add your favorite toppings and enjoy!
