2Add chili powder, cumin, chicken base (if using), salt, pepper, paprika, and oregano and stir.
3Add can of undrained tomatoes and stir using a wooden spoon to scrape the bottom of the pot to ensure no browned bits are stuck on there.
4Add in can of drained black beans and can of drained corn, then pour in chicken broth.
5Place chicken breasts into the liquid, then cancel the saute function, and secure Instant Pot lid, making sure the valve is set to “sealing”. Press the Pressure Cook or Manual button and use the +/- buttons to set the timer for 12 minutes.
6Once the timer beeps, let out the pressure by carefully moving the valve to “venting” to perform a quick release.
7When the pin drops, remove lid and set aside. Remove chicken breasts to a mixing bowl or cutting board and shred.
8Press the saute button once again, and add heavy cream and lime juice.
9Stir and heat for just a minute or two, until cream is warmed through.
