Instant Pot Directions:
- Using the saute function, heat the butter and saute the onion, red pepper and garlic for 2-3 minutes.
- Add the chicken broth, enchilada sauces, chicken, corn, pinto beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, cumin, and chili powder.
- Secure the lid and cook on high pressure for 7 minutes.
- Let the pressure naturally release for 10-15 minutes before using quick release for the remaining pressure.
- Add the cheese and sour cream and stir until melted. Garnish with desired toppings.
- In a large pot melt the butter over medium heat. Add the chicken, onion, red bell pepper and garlic. Cook mixture for 8-10 minutes, or until chicken is no longer pink.
- Add the broth, both enchilada sauces, corn, pinto beans, black beans, diced tomatoes, cumin, and chili powder. Stir until combined. Bring to a boil, then turn down the heat and simmer for 25 to 30 minutes, stirring occasionally.
- Remove from heat and add the cheese and sour cream and stir until melted.
