  • 2 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 ½ lbs boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 1" chunks
  • 1 cup sweet onion, diced
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper
  • 1 cup low-sodium chicken stock
  • 1 cup medium salsa
  • 1 (15.5 oz can) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 ½ cups frozen corn
  • 1 (4 oz can) diced green chilis
  • 1 cup long grain white rice
  • 1 cup shredded pepper jack cheese
  • limes, cilantro, avocado, tomatoes for topping


  • Turn on the Instant Pot to sauté setting and add oil. Add chicken and cook about 2 minutes per side or until browned. Add the onion, chili powder, cumin, paprika, garlic powder, salt and black pepper and stir until combined.
  • Stir in the chicken stock, salsa, black beans and diced green chilis. Add the rice and DO NOT stir.
  • Close lid and turn vent to "sealing." Set Instant Pot to "manual" and set pressure to HIGH for 10 minutes. When finished, do a quick release.
  • Add cheese and stir everything together. Serve immediately and garnish with desired toppings.


  • If you don't want to make your own seasoning, you can easily buy one at the grocery store.
  • You can control the level of the spice depending on the salsa you use to mix in the rice.
  • Leftovers will store well in the fridge for 2-3 days in an air-tight container or be frozen for 3 months.
