Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Olive oil
  • 2 Tablespoons butter
  • 1 large Chicken Breast
  • 1 large onion - chopped, about 1 pound
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 16 ounce Stewed Tomatoes
  • 16 ounce black beans - drained
  • 1/4 cup of mild Taco sauce
  • 1 can green Chiles
  • 1 package frozen gold and white corn, Birdseye
  • 1 package Success Rice
  • 1 Teaspoon Chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon seasoned salt
  • Seasoned pepper - to taste

Instructions

  • Place the Olive oil, and butter in the Instant Pot, and turn the IP to Saute. 
  • Melt the butter with the Olive oil, and add the chicken breast. 
  • Cook the Chicken breast until it's completely done, turning it over, and browning on all sides, about 25 minutes, or until there is no pink in the middle. 
  • When the chicken is done, turn off the IP, remove the chicken, and place it on a plate, and shred it.  Add the chicken broth to the Instant Pot, and let it sit for about 5 minutes. 
  • With a wooden spoon, scrape the bottom of the IP with the spoon, loosening the bits stuck to the bottom of the pan from cooking the chicken. 
  • This is known as de-glazing the pan, and will keep the bits that are stuck to the pan from burning by scraping them loose. 
  • Add the shredded chicken back into the IP, and add the chopped onion, minced garlic, Stewed tomatoes black beans, taco sauce, green Chiles, corn, rice, chili powder, ground Cumin, garlic salt, seasoned salt and seasoned pepper. 
  • Stir all ingredients, and place the lid on the Instant Pot, making sure the Pressure Valve is set to 'SEALING'.  
  • Press the 'SOUP' button, or setting on the Instant Pot, and let the soup cook.  When the IP finishes cooking the soup, it will beep and go to off. 
  • Make sure all the Pressure has been released, and make sure the FLOAT VALVE is down.  Remove the lid, and stir the soup. 
  • Serve in festive bowls, or crocks, with Tortilla chips, and shredded cheddar cheese.  Top with lime slices.  Enjoy!

Notes

NOTE:  If you aren't familiar with SUCCESS brand rice, it comes in a package with pre-measured bags of rice inside.  You just open one of the bags, and pour it in the Instant Pot, to add the rice. Make sure you drain and rinse the black beans before adding them to the soup.  If you like your food a little on the hot side, you might want to add a little more chili powder, or a medium Taco sauce instead of the mild.
