  • Instant Pot

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 15 ounces canned black beans drained and rinsed
  • 15 ounces canned corn (Do not drain)
  • 14 ounces canned petite diced tomatoes with green chilies
  • 3 bell peppers sliced (1 red, 1 yellow and 1 green)

  • teaspoons chili powder
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika

  • Place chicken on the bottom of the instant pot.
