  • Instant Pot (or Pressure Cooker)


  • 1 ½ pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cans condensed cream of chicken soup (10.75 ounces each can)
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 15 ounces canned black beans rinsed and drained
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 2 Tablespoons cilantro or 1/2 teaspoon dried cilantro
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • diced tomato optional topping
  • diced avocado optional topping
  • sour cream optional topping
  • crushed tortilla chips or tortilla strips optional topping


  • Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the Instant Pot.
  • In a bowl, mix together cream of chicken soup, salsa, corn, black beans, cumin, and cilantro. Pour over chicken in Instant Pot.
  • Pour water on top of all ingredients, but don’t mix it in.
  • Place lid on top of Instant Pot and move valve to SEALING.
  • Press MANUAL button (or PRESSURE COOK button) and set timer for 18 minutes (if using frozen chicken breasts, set timer for 25 minutes).
  • Once the time is up, move the valve to VENTING and do a QUICK RELEASE of the pressure.
  • Remove the lid, then remove the chicken breasts from the Instant Pot. Place them on a cutting board and shred using 2 forks. Add chicken back into Instant Pot.
  • Stir in cheese and let the cheese melt until soup is creamy and smooth.
  • Serve topped with your favorite toppings and more cheese if desired.


How to turn this into a freezer meal:
Place chicken, cream of chicken soup, salsa, corn, black beans, cumin, and cilantro in a gallon-sized freezer bag. Place freezer bag into freezer and it will last up to 90 days.
When ready to use, dump ingredients from bag into Instant Pot and add 1 1/2 cups of water in with the frozen food. Place the lid on top, move the valve to SEALING, and press the MANUAL button. Set timer for 25 minutes.
Do a QUICK RELEASE of the pressure when the timer is done. Follow the remaining instructions as written.
