4 to 6 servings
An Instant Pot or any electric pressure cooker will help you cook this affordable, delicious chili for tailgating or game-day parties at home. Use bone-in, skin-on chicken thighs for extra rich flavor and season it just how you like it with Carroll Shelby’s seasoning mix packets.
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 1 yellow onion, finely chopped
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 pound dried Great Northern beans, rinsed and sorted
- 2 (4.5-ounce) cans chopped green chiles
- 3 cups chicken stock
- 1 package Carroll Shelby’s White Chicken Chili Kit
- 2 pounds chicken thighs, bone in and skin on
- 1 teaspoon coarse salt
- 1/2 teaspoon white pepper
- 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, chopped + extra for garnish
- Toppings of choice: sour cream, tortilla chips, lime wedges, shredded pepper jack cheese, sliced jalapeños
- Select the Saute setting on the pressure cooker and select the High temperature setting; preheat for 2 minutes. Add olive oil, and when hot, add onion and garlic. Cook and stir until onion is translucent, about 5 minutes. Select Cancel.
- Add beans, green chiles, chicken stock, and contents of chili kit except for the Masa Harina packet (reserve that for another use). Close lid, lock and seal.
- Pressure cook on High temperature setting for 40 minutes. When cooking is finished, quick-release the pressure according to appliance instructions and let steam fully escape, about 4 to 5 minutes. When steam is safely released, open lid.
- Season chicken with salt and pepper and add the chicken and cilantro to the pot. Replace lid, lock and seal. Pressure cook on High for 5 minutes. When done, select Cancel. Allow pressure to release naturally, about 10 to 12 minutes, then quick- release any remaining steam according to appliance instructions.
- Safely open lid and remove cooked chicken from pot with a slotted spoon. Remove skin and bones from chicken and shred chicken meat.
- Ladle chili into bowls. Top with shredded chicken, chopped cilantro and desired chili toppings.
- Dried beans can be soaked overnight for a faster cook time. If beans are soaked, check them for doneness at 30 minutes.
