  • 1 white onion diced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno seeded & diced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 C white beans drained & separated into 1 C. portions
  • 1 C corn drained and separated into 1/2 C. portions
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 2 tsp cumin
  • 4 C chicken broth
  • 2 Tbsp corn flour *Maseca brand or other
  • 1 C shredded chicken
  • 3/4 C salsa verde
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 2 hatch green chiles roasted, seeded & diced*
  • 1/4 C cilantro chopped

Optional (for Garnish)

  • 1/2 C sour cream
  • 1/4 C cilantro chopped


  • In your instant pot, push saute and add the onion, garlic & jalapeño and saute for 3-4 minutes or until soft.
  • Turn the saute feature OFF.
  • In your blender, combine 1 C. of the beans with the corn, 2 of the Hatch chiles (or 1 can if you are using canned versus fresh), onion, garlic, jalapeño, cumin, chili powder and salt - blend until a thick paste forms. This paste is the base for your chili.
  • Pour the blended paste into your Instant Pot with the chicken broth, remaining cup of beans, remaining 1/2 C. corn, chicken, and salsa verde.
  • Blend 1/4 C. of the soup with the corn flour to make a thick paste, then add back to the instant pot. Stir in until well blended. This is not mandatory, but will add both taste and texture to your chili.
  • Put the lid on the Instant Pot, and turn the knob to seal. Place the pot on high (manual) for 5 minutes to allow the flavors to blend.
  • At the end of the 5 minutes, allow for a natural release for 10 minutes, then do a quick release.
  • Adjust your seasonings as necessary, stir in the 1/2 C. chopped cilantro.
  • Ladle into bowls and serve with additional chopped cilantro, sour cream or additional green chiles for garnish.


This is a wonderful recipe to use up a rotisserie chicken.Canned chiles can be used in place of the fresh green chiles.
