- 6 cups chicken stock or broth
- 1 can Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis undrained & ½ can (270ml) of other diced tomatoes (unless you want it really spicy use two cans of Rotel)
- 2 tbsp of tomato paste
- 1 medium onion, diced
- 3 cloves garlic finely minced
- 1 tsp chili powder (or 2 tsp if not using Rotel diced tomatoes with green chilis)
- 2 tsp cumin
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp coriander (ground)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 3–4 boneless skinless chicken breast (depends on size & how much you want about .75kg or 1.5 lbs)

- 2 cups frozen corn kernels
- 1.5 tbsp lime juice
- Fresh lime wedges
- Chopped cilantro to taste (optional)
- Optional toppings: tortillas, tortilla chips, sliced or diced avocado, guacamole shredded cheese or sour cream
- Add the chicken broth, diced tomatoes, onion and garlic to the instant pot.
- Add the chicken breasts next then top with all the spices on the chicken where possible.
- Add the corn and black beans no need to stir.
- Lock your Instant Pot lid and set to cook on manual high pressure for 6 minutes. (Note: Pressure takes several minutes to buiild)
- Let the pressure release naturally for 10 minutes. Use the quick release lever to release the rest of the pressure.
- Once depressurized, remove the chicken and shred it, it will practically fall apart.
- Return the chicken to the pot, add the 1.5 tbsp of lime juice and mix the soup
- Top with cilantro and more lime juice, we did.

The toppings make this soup! Don’t be afraid to add some toppings. We love the shredded cheese and crunchy tortillas on top yum yum. Lots of cilantro is also a fave
