Healthy Instant Pot Chicken Jalapeño Chili

Who else loves a good fall chili? Here is one of our favorite recipes for Healthy Instant Pot Chicken Jalapeño Chili. This is not only super healthy but also SUPER easy. It’s a one-pot dish, meaning you literally dump all of the ingredients into the Instant Pot, set for 25 mins, and it’s done!

I have been trying to cook in my Ninja Foodi instead of ordering in every night each week. Why you ask? First, it adds up, and second, I just really like knowing what goes into my food. I am proud to share that I have successfully cooked SIX nights in the past two weeks using super easy, healthy, and delicious recipes. The Chicken Jalapeño Chili tied for first (with a green curry chicken and a Thai chicken soup, which we will share soon) and my hubby and I both went back to the Foodi for seconds.

Let me first tell you why I love my Ninja Foodi (and recommend it to EVERYONE who will listen). First, its an Instant Pot, Slow Cooker, Steamer, and Air Fryer all in one. What does that mean for those of us in a tight space? It’s a SINGLE machine versus four separate ones. Second, the quality of the Foodi is great, and it’s super easy to use. Lastly, I simply cannot stress how much easier using an Instant Pot has made dinners for me. The pressure cooker functionality cooks your dinners in less than 30 minutes (oftentimes less than 10) and the flavor mirrors that of a slow cooker.

So, enjoy this twist on your traditional chili, with all the fall things inside and let us know what you think! Also check out our Healthy Low Carb Instant Pot Chicken Meatballs for another delish choice.
