If you like super simple and quick recipes, this is the one for you. There is barely any chopping requires & most things you will find in your pantry.

For this recipe I chose red kidney beans & chickpeas. But I have also made this recipe using black beans and white kidney beans, and it still tastes amazing. So use whatever you have in your pantry or whatever you like better!

If you are vegan or vegetarian, leave out the chicken & maybe add in an extra can of beans.

I topped mine with sour cream & fresh green onions. I also love topping this chili with crushed nachos.

    I don't have an instant pot - how long should it cook in a slow cooker?

      Hi Barbara! I unfortunately do not have an instant pot, so I don’t know an exact length of time it would take! I would assume it would be the same length as any other type of slow cooker chili recipe. Sorry!
