  1. In the Instant Pot, stir together the chicken, garlic, onion, paprika, chili powder, cumin, beans, corn, salsa, and broth. 
  2. Pour the rice over the top of the ingredients, but do not stir it.
  3.  Select manual setting; make sure the pressure is set to high and set the time for 10 minutes. When finished cooking, quick-release pressure according to manufacturer’s directions.  
  4. Stir in cheese until melted, about 1 minute.
  5. Serve in bowls immediately and top as desired.


To increase the flavor, you can brown the chicken and toast the rice with the saute setting ahead of time. However, if you just need to get it in and out, you can totally just toss it all in the Instant Pot and turn it on. Easy.
