Mary’s Easy Instant Pot® White Bean Chili
Fall is right around the corner, so I’m starting to break out the cold weather recipes again. Those late summer and early fall nights are my favorite time to dust off the Instant Pot… I love making Instant Pot recipes when I need a quick family dinner on a cool evening. Make sure to check out some of my other Instant Pot recipe ideas if you like this one!
Using Rotisserie chicken in your Instant Pot recipes is one of my favorite all-time cooking tips!
One of my favorite recipes for InstantPot is this Easy InstantPot White Bean Chili recipe. You can add store-bought rotisserie chicken to make the easiest version of this recipe. If you have the time, however, I recommend that you cook up my easy Instant Pot Shredded Chicken recipe.
Before my kiddos were all grown up, I used to be a podiatrist. Between keeping all my appointments and getting my kids out to all their after-school activities, the “set it and forget it” method made things so much easier. Whether I was whipping up a soup or making it a stew by throwing in some protein, the Instant Pot was a serious lifesaver.
Pro tip #1: Add flavor to your chili with roasted corn!
A good chili is bursting with flavor. This recipe incorporates tons of flavorful ingredients, from green chiles to enchilada sauce and a delicious blend of spices. I also LOVE to add some fire-roasted corn kernels to my chili pot—I always pick this ingredient up from the frozen section of my local grocery. They are delicious but don’t fret if you can’t find roasted corn. Just substitute drained canned corn or regular frozen corn kernels—still really good.
Pro tip #2: Wondering what to serve with white bean chili? Well, just let everyone serve themselves. All you have to do is prep the garnishes.
One of my favorite things about chili is how versatile it is. It lends itself to tons of different topping options, especially when you make it with white beans, which have a bit of a milder flavor than some other varieties. Chili also goes great with a lot of different sides—that’s why I just set the table and let everyone serve themselves.
There are so many different ways you could go with this. Serve your Instant Pot White Bean Chili with a salad and make it a lighter meal, or alongside a loaf of crusty bread and butter for something simple and hearty. Of course, you could always go all-out and serve it buffet style with any of the following sides… get creative, and most importantly, enjoy!
