Scale

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 1.5 cups black beans (or one can drained)
  • 2 cups diced sweet potato
  • 1 cup frozen corn
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1 (14.5 oz) can no-salt-added diced tomatoes
  • 2 Tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp cayenne pepper, optional
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • optional toppings: chips, cheese, avocado

Instructions

Combine all ingredients (except optional toppings) in the instant pot or slow cooker.

Option 1: Use the manual button on the instant pot to cook for 12-15 minutes depending on how thick your chicken breasts are. I usually let the pressure release naturally but if you’re in a hurry you can do manual release. If the chicken doesn’t shred easily, cook a few minutes more.

Option 2: Cook in the slow cooker for about 6 hours on low or until the chicken shreds easily.

Add toppings and serve!
