Ingredient Notes

  • Using chicken thighs is the best option here. The meat stays moist, easy to shred, and adds so much flavor that no broth is necessary.
  • This soup is made with red enchilada sauce. It also works great with green enchilada sauce; the flavor will be different.
  • Canned black beans could be easily replaced with kidney beans or other kinds.
  • Use frozen or canned corn.
  • Optional add-ons: use diced tomatoes, extra spices like chili and cumin.
  • This soup is served with gluten-free chips and yogurt. The Siete brand is my favorite kind. It’s widely available and made with healthy ingredients.
  • Optional toppings could be avocado, some shredded cheese, fresh cilantro.

How to Make It

1. Gather the ingredients. Prepare the instant pot. Open and rinse the black beans.

3. Press the pressure cook, and cook on high for 10 minutes. Once cooked and the timer is off, safely move the valve to allow the pressure to release naturally. Open the lid, shred the chicken using two large forks, mix the soup well, add salt to taste if needed.
