Chicken Green Chili White Bean Soup Recipe

Pressure Cooker Recipe ~ Chicken Green Chili White Bean Soup

I whipped this up in my Instant Pot pressure cooker and fell in love with the flavors. It is really simple and quick to make and you can easily swap out the beans if you have some different white beans on hand. The original recipe called for cannellini beans, but I had white navy beans and white beans in chili sauce on hand.

Yields: 6 servings


1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 red onion and 1/2 yellow onion, or 1 medium onion, diced
1/2 red bell pepper, or 4 mini sweet red peppers (the ones in the bag)
1 carton of chicken stock
1 cup water
2 chicken breasts (remove one half of a breast once cooked and save for another meal)
1 tsp prepared garlic, or 1 large clove fresh garlic chopped
1 can white navy beans
1 can white beans in green chili sauce
1 can diced green chiles
2 tsp cumin
1 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp black pepper
cilantro, chopped for finishing touches! Gives a lot of flavor. Just a tad will do!

Set pressure cooker to saute function (high). Saute onion, bell pepper for about 5 minutes or until translucent. Add garlic and salt, pepper & spices and saute for a minute more. Add in remaining ingredients: chicken stock, beans, chiles, 1 cup water.

Secure lid and cook on soup setting (20 minutes).

Allow pressure to naturally release. Pull out chicken. Allow to cool. Shred 1 and a half chicken breasts and place the chicken back into the soup. Save the rest for lunch or another meal. I am all about cooking smarter not harder! You can also freeze the shredded chicken for a later meal.

Serve soup in bowls with a little cilantro on top.

Stove modifications: 
Saute onions and peppers in oil. Add in remaining ingredients and simmer on low for 20-30 minutes. Remove chicken; shred chicken. Add chicken back into soup. Enjoy!

Suggestions: You could easily add in some spinach or kale to increase the veggies.
I like to add Cholula hot sauce to mine!
