Instant Pot Buffalo Chicken Chili

There’s chili and there’s Buffalo chicken.  And then there’s Buffalo chicken chili.  This was originally a slow cooker recipe I would make from the great slowcookergourmet.net with some modifications I’ve made, but when I got my Instant Pot, I wanted to see if I could make it in 20 minutes instead of 6 hours.  And let me tell you something, you can!
  • 2 pounds of ground chicken or ground turkey
  • 1 can of white navy beans, drained and rinsed
  • 1 14.5 oz can fire roasted tomatoes, drained (but don’t rinse! You can also use any variety of diced tomatoes you prefer –
    sometimes I like to use the one with zesty jalapeños for an extra kick!)
  • 4 cups chicken broth (use 4 cups of water mixed with 4 teaspoons of Chicken Better Than Bouillon)
  • ½ cup Buffalo Wing sauce (you can add more to taste)
  • 1 package of ranch dressing mix
  • 1 box of frozen corn kernels
  • ½ teaspoon onion powder
  • ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ½ teaspoon celery salt
  • ½ teaspoon dried cilantro
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 4 tablespoons of corn starch mixed with 4 tablespoons of water to form a slurry
  • 8 oz brick of cream cheese, cut into cubes
  • 2 cups (1 bag) of sharp cheddar cheese
  • Blue cheese crumbles and oyster crackers for topping

Got leftovers?  Good.  Get ready for one of the best dips of your life!  Just serve nice and thick cold right out of the fridge OR heat it up and dip in some chips of your choice!

  1. Set the Instant Pot to “Sauté” and “Adjust” to “Normal”. Brown ground chicken until fully cooked and crumbly – about 5 minutes.
  2. Add all remaining ingredients EXCEPT for the corn starch slurry, cream cheese, cheddar cheese and blue cheese and give it all a stir to combine.
  3. Secure lid, seal and set “Manual” or “Pressure Cook” High Pressure for 10 Minutes
  4. Perform a quick pressure release.
  5. Add the cubed cream cheese, the bag of cheddar cheese and the corn starch slurry. Whisk well until all is melted and incorporated into the chili.
  6. Allow chili to cool slightly so it thickens.
  7. Spoon into bowls and top with blue cheese crumbles and oyster crackers if desired
  8. Enjoy!
