Ingredients

  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts cut into 1" chunks (about 1 1/2 lbs)
  • 1 packet taco seasoning
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 cup chicken broth, divided
  • 1 can (15 oz) sweet yellow corn, drained
  • 1 can (15 oz) black beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 cup salsa
  • 1 cup long-grain rice or basmati rice (I prefer basmati rice)
  • chopped cilantro, shredded cheese, tomatoes, avocado, sour cream, tortilla chips for toppings

Instructions

  1. Add chicken, taco seasoning packet and other spices, and 1/4 cup of the chicken broth into the instant pot. Stir together making sure that the chicken is coated in the spices. 

  2. Dump in the corn, black beans, and salsa. Stir together. 

  3. Add the uncooked rice on top of the chicken mixture (DO NOT stir) and then pour the remaining 3/4 cup chicken broth on top (again, DO NOT stir it in). 

  4. Place lid on the instant pot making sure the pressure release valve is closed/sealed. Set the cook time manually to 10 minutes at high pressure. 

    ** If you use a Crock Pot Express Cooker then you will have to press the 'rice' or the 'bean/chili' button and then decrease the time to 10 minutes. It does not have a manual button like the Instant Pot.

  5. Let pressure naturally release for 5 minutes and then do a quick release by opening the valve. Stir together the chicken burrito filling. 

  6. Serve a scoop of the burrito filling into a bowl and then top with all your favorite toppings. 

Recipe Notes

I use a packet of milk taco seasoning. You can use regular chicken broth or low-sodium chicken broth. Either will work. Use a salsa that you really love. I always buy the fresh salsa that you find in the produce area of the grocery store. 

 

If you want some spice then add in a 4 oz can of green chilies with the corn and beans. Or use some cayenne red pepper and add it in with the other seasonings. 

 

The calorie count does not include any toppings. It is for 1 serving of the chicken burrito filling.
