I love making a big pot of soup or chili any time of year, but it especially feels right during the fall. I have a bazillion different soup and chili recipes that I rotate through, making some more often than others, but they are all so tasty. This Instant Pot BBQ Chicken Chili is one of our favorites! It’s hard to believe there was once a time when pretty much the only soup I ate was from a can. Having a good arsenal of soup recipes comes in handy for making easy, frugal, and delicious meals. I also love making a big pot of soup, as it tends to be a “make once, eat twice” kind of meal for our family.
I initially discovered this recipe on Carlsbad Cravings, a blog that you should be following if you aren’t already. Seriously, so many good eats! The original recipe is written to be made in a slow cooker or, alternatively, on the stove top. Previously, I’ve always used the slow cooker method of preparation, and we loved it! However, since purchasing my Instant Pot a few months ago, I am always interesting in converting older recipes to prepare in the Instant Pot pressure cooker, because it’s just so much faster in most instances. I’m happy to report that this one was a huge success!
You’ll love the sweet, smoky flavors of this Instant Pot BBQ chicken chili and the fact that it is a cinch to prepare! I’m a bit of a minimalist and just love it topped with freshly shredded colby jack cheese (because cheese you shred yourself melts so much better!), but you can also top it with sour cream, avocado, tortilla chips, or whatever your heart desires. With a handful of staple ingredients, dinner can be ready in a flash! It only cooks for 10 minutes–serve it up with a piece of skillet cornbread and you are golden!
- Instant Pot pressure cooker (I use the DUO60 model and LOVE it)
- Box grater to shred your own cheese, if desired (it’s worth it, in my opinion!)
If you want an easy, frugal meal to warm you this fall, give this recipe a try! You’ll want to add it to your weekly meal plan over and over again. 🙂
