Instant Pot Chicken with Hatch Chili Cauliflower Sauce

We’re crazy for Hatch chili season! Even though the season only lasts a few weeks in August, these chilis can be roasted and frozen for later. For this tasty recipe, we combine Hatch chilis, cauliflower and cheese for a spicy, creamy sauce to spoon over chicken. The chicken and sauce cook together in the Instant Pot for easy clean-up. Serve over rice for a dinner the whole family will love.
