Easy Cajun White Chili In Your Instant Pot

It is Mardi Gras season here in south Louisiana and we love tradition. This year is a little different with most of the Mardi Gras parades and celebrations cancelled, but that hasn’t stopped us from moving forward with our family celebrations. People of Louisiana celebrate with food and I am here for it!

Last year was our first year doing a “tour” of Mardi Gras parades. Finally, all 3 of our children were old enough to hang with us in the crowds of the Lafayette area Mardi Gras celebrations. We had so much fun and are a little sad we can’t do the same thing this year. Although this year will be different for so many people, it’s really not that different for our family. We usually choose to have small celebrations at our home as opposed to gathering in large crowds. Getting ready with great home cooked food is nothing new for our household and this year we are going all out!

I make this Easy Cajun White Chili in my Instant Pot a couple of times a year and everyone in the house loves it! I serve it with cornbread. Today I am making corn fritters or what some people call cornbread pancakes. No matter what you or your family call them, they taste amazing and are the perfect addition to this Cajun White Chili recipe.

This Cajun White Chili Recipe is not one that I make often, just because I forget about white beans. I get on a kick of cooking with red beans and black eyed peas and completely forget about all of the amazing white beans out there. Maybe sharing this great recipe with all of you will help me remember.

Why the Instant Pot?

I am mostly making this dish in my Instant Pot. If you haven’t gotten an Instant Pot yet, you really need to go ahead and make the investment. I bought my Instant Pot 5 years ago and am still using the same Instant Pot. By far, my favorite dish to cook in my Instant Pot is dry beans. They cook super fast and the texture is amazing. I never knew beans could have different texture, but beans in the Instant Pot have such a creamy texture and never seem to get over-cooked, no matter how long you cook them!

You can also make this recipe in your slow cooker or just on the stove top. Just cook your dried beans as you normally would and add the rest of the ingredients as this recipe calls for them. It still turns out amazingly. I hope you enjoy this recipe and share it with the people you love for years to come.
