Ingredients

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 medium onion chopped
  • 3 chicken breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 (12 fluid ounces) can corn drained
  • 1 (19 fluid ounces) can black beans drained & rinsed
  • 1 (4 ounce) can diced green chilies 
  • 2 (13.5 fluid ounce) cans fire-roasted diced tomatoes with juices
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Toppings (optional, to taste):

  • Chopped avocado
  • Mexican shredded cheese blend
  • Chopped cilantro
  • Tortilla chips
  • Lime wedges
  • Greek yogurt or sour cream

Instructions

  • Sauté the onion in your Instant Pot for 5 minutes.
  • Add the other soup ingredients, except for salt & pepper, to your pressure cooker and give it a stir. 
  • Cancel sauté and ensure the lid is on "sealing". Cook on high pressure for 8 minutes. It'll take about 10-15 minutes for it to get up to pressure.
  • Once the countdown has finished, carefully do a quick pressure release (soups can splatter a bit).  
  • Take the chicken out and shred it with two forks. Add it back into the soup, dish it up, and top each bowl as desired.

Notes

  • I use this 6-quart Instant Pot.
  • Here is the stovetop version.
  • You can use chicken thighs if you prefer (use about a pound or so).
