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 recipe, Instant Pot Creamy Chicken Chili has won twice! The first time I made this chili, I prepared it in the crockpot which was super easy. But, last year I wanted to convert the recipe to be made in my Instant Pot and I love it just as much!
This Creamy Chicken Chili recipe really is a “dump and go” recipe. And with the addition of the Instant Pot instructions, it can be made in under thirty minutes! You’ll be enjoying a warm bowl of this 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 slice of Sweet Moist Cornbread or in a yummy bread bowl. If you want, this chili is thick enough to be served as a dip with tortilla chips! The perfect entree or appetizer.
Ingredients for Creamy Chicken Chili
-Rotel or Diced Tomatoes with Green Chilies
-Ranch Dressing Seasoning Packet
Slow Cooker Instructions
Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. I like to spray the inside of the slow cooker with non-stick spray to ease clean up. Next, pour a can of black beans, read beans, corn, and Rotel over the chicken. Sprinkle the spices, ranch packet, and liquid smoke over the bean mixture. Stir lightly to mix. Place the cream cheese on top.
Cover the slow cooker and cook on high for 3-4 house or low for 6-8 hours. About 30 minutes before serving, remove the chicken, shred and place back in the slow cooker. Stir the chili until the cream cheese is melted and all mixed in.
Instant Pot Instructions
Spray the inside of the Instant Pot with non-stick spray. Place chicken in the Instant Pot and cover with the remaining ingredients, except the cream cheese. Put the lid on and close the vent. Set the manual timer for 20 minutes.
When the timer goes off, do a quick release and remove the chicken. Cube the softened cream cheese and add to the chili to melt while you shred the chicken, then add the shredded chicken back to the pot. Serve once the cream cheese is mixed in.
Top this delicious Creamy Chicken with sour cream, cheese, salsa, jalapeños, tortilla strips, etc. I promise, this will be one of the easiest, yummiest, chili recipes you’ll ever make!
