This is a chili that you'll find in the Mountain West--either Colorado or New Mexico. It has a medium heat and complex taste, thanks to green chiles from Hatch, New Mexico. The dish is a simple stew with a cohesive taste across different textures and flavors, that can be thickened as you like it. Serve with bread, tortillas, rice, or even over a breakfast burrito!

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®), select Saute function, and add olive oil. Add chicken breast, onion, chile peppers, garlic, cumin, salt, and pepper to hot oil. Saute until chicken is browned and onions are soft and translucent, about 5 minutes. Add chicken broth, salsa verde, white beans, corn kernels, and cilantro; mix well. Turn off Saute mode.

  • Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 30 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.

  • Release pressure using the natural-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 15 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Select Saute function. Stir in flour and cook chile until it thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. If you like a thicker consistency, mix potato starch and water in a small bowl and stir into chile with the flour. Serve with lime wedges.
