A multi-cooker gives this hearty chili that cooked-all-day flavor and texture in a fraction of the time. A generous amount of spices and a dab of canned chipotle chiles in adobo sauce deliver a balanced, smoky kick. Serve the chili with all the usual toppings--a squeeze of lime juice, fresh cilantro, avocado, Cheddar and sour cream.



Special equipment:
a 6 or 8-quart Instant Pot® multi-cooker
  1. Sprinkle both sides of the chicken with a pinch of salt and several grinds of pepper. Set a 6- or 8-quart Instant Pot® to high saute (see Cook's Note). Add the olive oil to the pot; once it's shimmering, add the chicken. Cook until both sides are golden brown, about 5 minutes per side. Remove to a plate. Add the poblano and red onion. Cook, stirring occasionally and scraping any browned bits from the bottom of the pot, until just tender, about 4 minutes. Add the cilantro, cumin, coriander, oregano, garlic, chipotle pepper and adobo sauce, 3/4 teaspoon salt and a few grinds of pepper. Cook, stirring, until the garlic is tender and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes more. Return the chicken to the pot, then stir in the chicken broth, white beans and their liquid, green chiles and tortillas until combined. Cancel the high saute function.
  2. Follow the manufacturer's guide for locking the lid and preparing to cook. Set to pressure cook on high for 12 minutes. After the pressure-cook cycle is complete, follow the manufacturer's guide for quick release and wait until the quick-release cycle is complete (this should take about 3 minutes). Being careful of any remaining steam, unlock and remove the lid. Using tongs, remove the chicken to a plate, then shred with 2 forks. Stir the shredded chicken back into the pot, then taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper. Ladle into serving bowls and top with cilantro, sour cream, cheese, avocado and/or lime wedges for squeezing.
