We have made this recipe healthier over the years by using organic produce and non-BPA-lined cans. You can absolutely use home-cooked beans, or your own bone broth and freshly cooked corn on the cob (if using fresh corn from the cob, use 1 cup of chicken broth instead of 1/2 to compensate for the lost liquid).

What Size Ranch Dressing Mix Should I Use?

Various ranch mix brands come in different sizes. It should be enough to make 16 oz of dressing or dipper the package instructions.

  • Hidden Valley brand ranch packets come in a more concentrated 0.4 oz packet yielding 2 cups ranch.
  • Simply Organic Ranch dip used here came in a 1.5 oz packet which also yields 2 cups ranch dip.

  2. Add 1/2 to 1 tsp chili powder (use 1/2 tsp to make it kid friendly), 1 tsp cumin, ranch packet. Stir everything to combine, getting some of the juice under the chicken to keep it from scorching.

Once it is done cooking, let it naturally depressurize for 10 min then switch the valve to the "venting" position to completely release steam before opening lid.**

  4. Remove the chicken breasts to a plate and shred apart with 2 forks. Stir everything together in the pot to melt the cream cheese into the chili then return the shredded chicken and stir to combine. Serve garnished with avocado and cilantro if desired.
