  • 2 cups of water
  • 2-3 Tablespoons Better Than Bouillon Chicken
  • 2-4 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion

  • 1 - 2 Tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground coriander
  • ½ teaspoon dried oregano
  • 2 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 3 cans 15-ounce cans navy beans undrained
  • 1 4- ounce can chopped green chiles
  • 1/2 cup sour cream


  • Combine water and Better Than Bouillon. Set aside.
  • Set Instant Pot to SAUTE. Add oil and onions and cook for 5 minutes.
  • Add peppers, garlic, and spices and sauté for 3 minutes.
  • Stir in beans, green chiles, chicken, and Better Than Boullion/water mixture.

  • Set BEAN/CHILI program for 30 minutes.
  • When finished, release the pressure valve.

Instead of water and bullion, you can substitute 2 cups of chicken broth or stock.
To thicken the chili, combine 1/4 cup cornstarch with enough water or chicken broth to make a slurry. Add to the chili after it is finished and stir well. It should thicken in a few minutes.
