Easy Weeknight Instant Pot Chili
This Hurricane Ridge Chicken Chili is an easy meal to make on weeknights.
Chicken chili isn’t usually what comes to mind when you think “easy weeknight dinner.” But, with your trusty Instant Pot in hand, this soup is surprisingly fast and satisfying!
When I get home on weeknights and don’t want to cook anything, I make this easy Hurricane Ridge Chicken Chili in my Instant Pot. The last time I made the Hurricane Ride Chicken Chili, I got everything ready, then I went to the store to pick up sour cream. By the time I got back, the soup was done! This is a favorite for weeknights.
Honestly, the hardest part is rummaging through my fridge to see if I have any extra veggies that I can sneak in. Here’s where to get our Hurricane Ridge Chicken Chili.
Read on for a guaranteed way to get dinner on the table in less time than it takes you to go to the store!! Okay, maybe not guaranteed, but it works for me.
Easy Weeknight Hurricane Chicken Chili
You will need:
1 Package Hurricane Ridge Chicken Chili (Family Size)
1 Chicken Breast
Optional Veggies (gotta sneak those veggies in somewhere)
Chopped Bell Peppers
Diced Sweet Potatoes
1/4 Quinoa, Brown Rice or White Rice
- Lay beans on a rimmed cookie sheet to look for rocks or other field debris (Here is an article on how to sort your beans.)
- Transfer the beans to a colander and give them a quick rinse.
- Put the rinsed beans, whole chicken breast, both spice packets, and any optional veggies in the Instant Pot.
- Add 7 cups of water. (If I don’t add 1/4 of quinoa or rice, I cut out 1/2 C of water; I add 6 1/2 instead of 7)
- Lock the lid and seal the valve.
- Set Instant Pot to Manual High Pressure for 30 minutes.
- Once the Instant Pot is done, you can let the steam release naturally or release it manually if you’re in a hurry.
- Shred the chicken with two forks
