Chicken Taco Chili, made with chicken, beans, corn and tomatoes seasoned with taco seasoning is one of my most popular slow cooker recipes, which I just remade for Instant Pot after several requests! This recipe couldn’t be easier, made with ingredients you probably already have in your pantry.

Ingredients

  • olive oil spray
  • 1 small onion (chopped)
  • 1 15.5 oz can black beans, not drained
  • 1 15.5-oz can kidney beans, not drained
  • 1 8-oz can tomato sauce
  • 10 oz package frozen corn kernels
  • 2 10 oz cans diced tomatoes w/chilies (Rotel)
  • 24 oz 3 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 ounce can chopped green chili peppers
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 packet reduced sodium taco seasoning or homemade (see below)

For the taco seasoning:

  • 1 1/2 tablespoons cumin
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

  • Press saute and spray the insert with oil, add the onion and stir, cooking until soft and golden, about 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Press cancel to prevent getting a burn notice, then deglaze the pot with 1/4 cup water.
  • Add the chicken and season both sides with half of the taco seasoning.
  • Add the beans, corn, green chilies, then finish with the diced tomatoes and tomato sauce.
  • Add 1/2 cup water plus the remaining taco seasonings and gently stir without moving the chicken.
