Served with fluffy skillet cornbread, it makes for the perfect cold weather meal!

    • Vanessa

    This is amazing!!! Definitely making this a regular recipe now. So easy that it’s all one pot. I only had one can of black beans and no jalapenos, but it was still great! I also added a tablespoon of garlic powder, and guac on top. Thanks so much for sharing 😍😍

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi Vanessa, Guacamole sounds good! I’m so glad it turned out amazing!

    • MaKayla

    Will cooking the chicken for 20 minutes be too long and dry it out?

      • Alyona’s Cooking

      Hi MaKayla, it shouldn’t dry out in an Instant pot with liquid, the longer you pressure cook the more tender it will be it keeps the air in so you shouldn’t end up with dry meat.
