Every year, my neighborhood has a get-together that includes a soup and chili competition.

 

For some reason, competition really gets me going and I love to take on the challenge. Because of this, for the past five years, I have entered and won the contest! 

 

This Creamy Chicken Chili has won twice! The first time I made this chili, I prepared it in a slow cooker which was super easy.

 

Last year I wanted to convert the recipe to be made in my Instant Pot and I love it just as much! 

 

Creamy Chicken Chili

 

This chili recipe really is a “dump and go” type recipe. And with the addition of the Instant Pot instructions, it can be made in under 30 minutes!

 

You’ll be enjoying a warm bowl of the creamy goodness before you know it. It’s the perfect recipe for a cool fall or winter night, or to serve to guests on game day.

 

I like to serve it with a warm slice of Sweet Moist Corn Bread or in a yummy bred bowl.

 

If you want, this chili is thick enough to be served as a dip with tortilla chips! It’s the perfect entree or appetizer.
