  1. Combine chicken breasts, black beans, chicken stock, corn, tomatoes, enchilada sauce, green chiles, onion, garlic, salt, and cumin in a multi-functional pressure cooker. Close and lock the lid. Select Stew mode and cook on high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  2. Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, 10 to 40 minutes. Remove chicken, shred it with 2 forks, and return it to the soup.


  • Cook's Notes:
  • If using a slow cooker, cook on Low for 6 hours or High for 3 hours.
  • You can use 1 1/4 cup homemade sauce in place of the canned enchilada sauce.
