You can also use chicken thigh for a cheaper and juicier cut of chicken.
The black beans can be substituted for your favorite type of beans.
If you decide to use full sodium chicken broth, you may not need to add in any additional salt once your chicken chili has finished cooking. Make sure to taste the chili before adding any additional seasoning.
If you're looking for a good pressure cooker then I'd recommend this Instant Pot.
This recipe has the potential of getting really spicy really fast. Even when I bought the mild version of Rotel and enchilada sauce, with the addition of the chili powder it still had a little bit of spice. If you have a strong aversion to spice, you may need to omit the chili powder altogether and use plain diced tomatoes instead of Rotel.
On the other hand, if you want to make this recipe even spicier, add in an additional can of green chilies and 1 teaspoon of chili powder instead of ½ teaspoon.
