Recipe: Instant Pot Texas Chicken Green Chili with Cider

Celebrate the start of football season and the last weeks of Hatch chile season with this easy-to-make crowd-pleaser.

Texas Chicken Green Chili with Cider

1 28 ounce can tomatillos
2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 onion, diced
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 pounds green chiles (Hatch, Anaheim, poblano, whichever you prefer) roasted, peeled, stemmed, seeded, and diced (see note)
1 cup apple cider
2 tablespoons apple cider vinegar
2 pounds skinless, boneless chicken thighs, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 tablespoon salt
Optional garnishes: Chopped cilantro, lime wedges, shredded cheese, sour cream, sautéed seasonal vegetables (corn, tomatoes, zucchini, eggplant, okra), crumbled tortilla chips, or avocado slices.

Add the tomatillos to a food processor and pulse until chopped but still a little chunky. Alternatively, pour them into a bowl and break up the tomatillos by squeezing them with your hands. Set aside.

On the medium sauté setting, sauté the diced onion in the oil until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the garlic and sauté for 1 minute more, until fragrant.

Add the tomatillos, green chiles, apple cider, apple cider vinegar, hicken, and salt to the Instant Pot. Set to cook on high for 15 minutes, manually release the pressure, and serve with garnishes as you see fit.

Note: This time of year, some supermarkets will sell chiles pre-roasted. If you buy fresh, simply broil or grill the chiles until they are black, then put them in a heat tolerant dish with a lid and wait until they cool. You might want to wear gloves to peel and seed the chiles, especially if you have sensitive skin.   :snip:  https://www.texasmonthly.com/food/recipe-instant-pot-texas-chicken-green-chili-with-cider/
