Ok, I need to know something. Who creates National Food Holidays? Because I want that job! You see, I just found out a few weeks ago that today is National Chili Day. Um, hence the Chicken Verde Chili recipe. I know, so clever of me, but it’s such a scrumptious and cozy chili. Trust me!
In all honesty, I do WANT TO KNOW who is in charge of these food holidays so I can pass along my two cents. Like say, a National Tortilla Chip Day to proceed National Chili Day. And then maybe a national Jalapeño on Everything Day after that. Can you tell that I have warming foods on my mind? Yep, old man winter is stickin around these days.
Why You’ll Love this Instant Pot Chicken Verde Chili
Alright, let’s bring our focus back into this deliciousness we got going on right here. My friends, this is a stovetop and instant pot (aka Insta-Pot) Chicken Verde Chili that will literally blow your mind! No matter the Food Holiday.
Here’s the recipe back-story and all the details. You know you love me more for it. Wink Wink.
You see, every winter mom makes this AMAZING White Bean Chicken Chili. It’s a go-to recipe for family dinners, football watching parties, Christmas, etc. In fact, it’s the number one used recipe in our family cookbook. Haha, yes, we have a family cookbook.
Anyways, I do love this recipe but I wanted to find a way to make it beanless, yet still hearty and flavorful. Now, don’t get me wrong. We love legumes (such as beans), but I like to use them in rotation or when properly prepared. You feel me? Good!
Chef hat and thinking cap went on, and BAM, I came up with a solution. Well, let’s just say it was a solution inspired by Garden of Eatin’® new Organic Corn Chips.
For this Chili recipe, I wanted something quick, delicious, fresh, and yet still hearty in texture. Yep, you got that right. We replaced beans with Organic Non-GMO Corn chips and gluten free tortillas.
The delicious facts Garden of Eatin’® New “Better for YOU” Corn Chips:
- They come in 3 flavors; Yellow Corn and Sea Salt, Blue Corn and Sea Salt, and BBQ Black Bean. ALL YUM!

See, inspiration at it’s finest! Just sayin..
Think of this Chili flavor this way —> Spicy Chicken Verde Chili meets Tortilla Soup meets Chilaquiles. If you don’t know what Chilaquiles are, be prepared to drool! A Mexican Breakfast dish with crispy tortilla chips, pulled chicken (or eggs), salsa, and cheese. OMG!
