  • 1 1/2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 medium onion diced
  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken broth divided
  • 1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken thighs cut into 1-inch pieces
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • 15 ounce can black beans drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 16 ounce jar salsa
  • 1 cup long-grain white rice
  • 1/2 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro coarsely chopped, optional


  1. Add the oil to the Instant Pot, turn on sauté setting, and heat until the oil is shimmering.
  2. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 4 minutes.
  3. Stir in the chili powder and cumin. Cook for about 30 seconds.
  4. Add 1/4 cup of the chicken broth and cook, gently scraping the bottom of the pot with a wooden spoon to loosen any stuck-on bits, and simmer for 1 minute.
  5. Add the chicken, salt and pepper, beans, corn, salsa, and stir to combine.
  6. Sprinkle the rice on top of the chicken and beans mixture and pour the remaining 1/2 cup broth on top of the rice, but do not stir.
  7. Using your pressure cookers manual setting, set the pressure to HIGH for 15 minutes. Close and lock the lid.
  8. After cooking time is up let the cooker natural release for 10 minutes. Let release the rest of the pressure manually.
  9. Cut chicken into cubes.  Gently stir everything together.
  10. Divide between bowls and top with the cheese and other toppings.

Recipe Notes

*Be sure to add the rice last so that it will not burn on the bottom of the Instant Pot pan! If using chicken that is not frozen, you can cut the cooking time down by 5 minutes.
