Instant Pot Chicken Chili Recipe

I always prefer foods that are just a little bit spicy.  This recipe is pretty mild, but you can easily add some hot sauce or a bit of chili powder to make it hotter for your own preference.  We always have hot sauce on the table along with salsa, so it’s easy to add that kick of spice if needed!
